National Health Partners, Inc. (NHPR)
Health care in the United States is provided by many separate legal entities. Health care facilities are largely owned and operated by the private sector. Health insurance is primarily provided by the private sector, with the exception of programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, the Children's Health Insurance Program, and the Veterans Health Administration. In the United States, ownership of the health care system is mainly in private hands, though federal, state, county, and city governments also own certain facilities. Health care costs have been rising for several years. Many analysts have cited controlling health care costs as a key tenet for broader economic stability and growth.
