Los Angeles Times

Healthcare in the United States is the most expensive in the world, but it’s not the best, according to new research.

For each person, the U.S. spent $7,690 on medical care in 2009, according to data from the Commonwealth Fund research group. That was 17% of GDP at the time and the most of the 13 nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, or OECD.
