Historically based on the action of nonprofit actors according to the subsidiarity principle, the USA healthcare system is experimenting an increasing role of for-profit organisations, that through M&A are expanding their position in healthcare market. In this framework, the article discusses the reasons of this trend and the possible consequences in terms of sustainability of the system as a whole, suggesting the importance of this phenomenon from the point of view of the European countries, that, on the basis of the subsidiarity principle, are now reforming their welfare systems.
