The cost of care keeps going up in part because hospitals run like businesses. They must advertise, keep updating their equipment to attract doctors to fill their beds. Prices for procedures are set by the market. In every other country even those with "private" systems, the government sets the price for procedures like MRI scans. The invisible hand has been slapping us silly.
