Shared publicly  - 
"Most rich countries choose to finance their healthcare publicly for several reasons. First, free-market healthcare is usually inequitable and inefficient. Individual needs vary significantly and private companies are often unwilling to insure the very people who need the most care (such as those who are already ill, or who have conditions such as diabetes, which predispose them to other health problems). "
The US is one of few high income countries that does not finance healthcare through a publicly funded prepaid system.
