Why are medical procedures so expensive in USA?


My husband has a medical test he is going to today which takes less than 30 minutes and costs $1900. I looked up the prices in other countries. When converted to USD this test costs less than $500 and as low as $100. Is this politics related? Why in the world would they charge that much for a test that takes such a little amount of time? I should add he is going to the lowest cost place in our area.
