Millions of Americans have no health insurance, and live in fear that one illness could bankrupt them. Even though the U.S. spends far more on health care than other high-income nations, Americans still die of preventable diseases at greater rates. The PBS NewsHour special “Critical Care: America vs the World,” examines how other nations achieve universal care for less money, with better outcomes.
