The health care experience of two individuals, one from the United States and one from the United Kingdom with similar medical conditions, provided an interesting vantage point for this focused comparative analysis of two different models of health care delivery. The impact of the health care system’s unique financial, payment, organization, regulation and behavior profile on the individual reduces abstraction and drives home the profound impact health care policy choices have on its citizens. It was my intent to present the pros and cons of each health care system model in the hopes that public policy makers from both countries might learn from each other.
