How Much Do We Spend on Healthcare?

That’s a great question. So think about this. In 2022, Americans spent $4.5 trillion on their health care. And it’s a big number to wrap your head around if you just think about what a trillion dollars is. So if you think about a trillion in perspective of time, if you take a second and you go back a million seconds, that would give you 12 days. It’d be 12 days ago if you went back a million seconds. A billion seconds would take you back 31 years. So you’re 31 years ago. A trillion seconds takes you to 30,000 B.C. if you can believe that. A trillion seconds takes you back that far. That’s how much money one trillion is. And we’re spending $4.5 every year.
