    It depends where you see the word used. As a previous post said, organizations have their own preferences, however, they mean the same thing.

    According to the Associated Press Stylebook (the Bible in any newsroom), the appropriate use is "health care," so that's the spelling you'll see in most newspapers and magazines. But, again, some organizations prefer to use "healthcare" as one word.

    It is just a question of preference. I work for a large association in Washington and we use "health care" in our documents.
