The United States Continues to Outspend All Other 
Countries on Health Care (Exhibits 1, 2, and 3) 
 
 In 2008, health care spending in the U.S. reached $7,538 per capita—far more than in any other country studied and more than double the OECD median of $2,995. Health care spending in the next-highest spending countries—Norway and 
Switzerland—was less than two-thirds as much per 
capita ($5,003 and $4,627, respectively). In all but 
two of the remaining eight countries, spending per 
capita was less than half the U.S. figure, and in New 
Zealand it was close to one-third ($2,683).

 The U.S. spent 16 percent of its GDP on health 
care. This proportion was nearly double the OECD 
median (8.7%) and over 40 percent more than the 
country spending the second-largest share of GDP 
(France 11.2%).
