Higher prices in US

Costs are higher in US in large part because prices for health care services are higher

On the buyer side, governments in single-payer systems can bargain more effectively than can US insurance companies with doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies

On the seller side, hospital mergers have led to greater negotiating leverage with insurers

Peterson & Burton, Congressional Research Service (2007)
