Healthcare Spending to Reach 19.7% of GDP Within a Decade

Healthcare Dive

Health care spending in the U.S. is projected to increase 5.5% annually on average from 2017 to 2026, 1 percentage point higher than the expected GDP growth for the same time period, according to an estimate from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Growth is expected to be driven by economic and demographic factors including changes in projected income growth, increases in medical prices and a shift in enrollments from private health insurance to Medicare due to the aging U.S. population.
