We have universal healthcare in the UK. There is also a private healthcare sector.

Yet somehow healthcare is generally far more expensive in the US where a market ought to be driving prices down.

The problem is that it is not a genuinely free market. But nearly nothing is a genuinely free market. There are always minimum standards and that is a government necessity. Because the free market doesn't have the time to work before everything goes wrong. Compare thalidomide.
