One of the major national healthcare issues is the rising cost of care. The healthcare system in the U.S is considered the most expensive globally. According to the American Medical Association (AMA) (2019),  health spending in the U.S. increased by about 4.6% in 2019 to about 3.8 trillion or $11,582 per capita.  Factors that drive the cost include the increasing number of aged population which contribute to high prices due to more complex and chronic conditions as well as growth in Medicare enrollment.
