New Health Care Index Shows Massive Increase in Consumer Costs Despite Government’s Growing Role in Nation’s Health Care System

While the U.S. government has become an even more dominant force in the nation’s health care system, individuals are taking on a greater share of the costs, according to the new U.S. News Health Care Index.

The index was developed exclusively by U.S. News & World Report as an ongoing way to track health care’s changing role in the U.S. economy and society. The first series of data, from 2000 to 2013, presents a comprehensive overview of the U.S. health care system by following movements in health care expenditures, medical costs, insurance coverage, health care employment, international comparisons and health care degrees granted in the U.S. See the full release[4] to learn more about the findings of the report.
