Affordability of health care in the United States is a major problem that has been ongoing for some time but a lasting solution is imminent. This assertion is based on the revolutionary steps that have been initiated by several players in the health sector.

This is a warm gesture at a time when the American people are immobilized by the almost unaffordable healthcare plans. The One Planet Award is a global initiative intended to recognize the efforts of businesses and individuals in their endeavors to make the world a better place.
The Award is an annual program that seeks to reward individuals and businesses around the world that have shown commitment to business professionalism and merit.

This year, CEO Troy McQuagge bagged the Award for his outstanding efforts in the health sector. He is the current president of USHEALTH and his efforts have not gone unnoticed. Since he joined the USHEATLTH Group in 2010, he has propelled the company in notable ways.
