I can’t recommend the book Overcharged enough if you really want to understand what is wrong with American healthcare. The answer is basically everything, but the fee-per-service billing model and third-party billing that obfuscates prices are the essential causes.

If you want an extremely accurate and often hilarious book on what’s wrong with healthcare, I recommend “Overcharged”. If anything it taught me that everything is negotiable with health insurance.

I will link to this book over and over: "Overcharged" explains the American medical system and its problems in great detail. Cannot recommend it more. Price obfuscation, third-party payments, and government interference have warped the medical system in ways that will make you laugh (then cry).
