While the residents of Japan are not negatively impacted financially, a second financial implication is well noted. According to the PBS frontline documentary, Sick around the World (2008), while patients are unlikely to go broke paying hospital or physician bills, 50% of Japanese hospitals are in financial deficit. The fear, according to one physician at one of the major hospitals is that hospitals in Japan may be an endangered species. While the US spends too much on healthcare, Japan reportedly does not spend enough resulting in this deficit. While this financial implication does not directly affect patients in Japan, it does financially affect the hospitals who may have to increase cost to prevent any further financial deficits.
