ABSTRACT
The author deals with the sustainability of the healthcare system in the U.S. The author highlights the annual report on the nation's healthcare spending which covers 2007 expenditures. According to the author, for those who worry about runaway health costs, the report showed at least one bright spot. He says that it might be a good time to decide whether the administrative costs of private insurance in general are worth the price.
