In 2014, implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will cause a spike in US health spending; analysts project an increase of 7.4% over 2013. This increase will break a near-decade-long period of slower growth for national health spending. In 2009, health spending increased only 3.8%, an all-time low. The 2010 increase was only slightly higher at 3.9%. This slow growth in 2010 health spending matched the growth in the economy as it recovered from recession, keeping health care's share of GDP unchanged at 17.9%.
Health Care Costs 101, part of CHCF's California Health Care Almanac, details how much is spent on health care in the US; which services are purchased; and what proportions are financed by households, government, and business.
Highlights for 2010 include:
