How does healthcare work in your country?

In the United States, healthcare is provided by a combination of public and private entities. The federal government provides healthcare through the Medicare and Medicaid programs, which are funded by taxes and provide healthcare coverage to the elderly and certain low-income individuals. Additionally, many employers offer insurance plans to their employees, either through a private insurer or through a self-funded plan. Private insurance plans may also be purchased directly from insurers or through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Additionally, many states have public health insurance programs that cover certain individuals and families.
