Developed Countries With Universal Health Care


Recommended Posts

Out of the 33 developed countries, 32 have universal health care. They adopt one of the following three models.

In a single-payer system, the government taxes its citizens to pay for health care. Twelve of the 32 countries have this system. The United Kingdom is an example of single-payer socialized medicine. Services are government-owned and service providers are government employees. Other countries use a combination of government and private service providers.

Six countries enforce an insurance mandate. It requires everyone to buy insurance, either through their employer or the government. Germany is the best example of this system. 

The nine remaining countries use a two-tier approach. The government taxes its citizens to pay for basic government health services. Citizens can also opt for better services with supplemental private insurance. France is the best example.
