While I do not agree that there is 80% abuse, there is clearly something wrong. If you compare the US medical system to ANY other, the US is about twice as expensive and gets worse results. Prescription drugs are only a few percent of medical costs, so most of the $$ is going to medical services. We do not know how much is wasted/abused, because the law makes it illegal to publish usage of medical services by doctor, doctors do not provide upfront estimates of costs, and multiple players have conflicts of interest. Malpractice insurance only makes all of this worse.
