More on What is Out of Control

Seems as if several health research organizations have been monitoring increases in health care costs.

During the period 2000-2003 the following statistics have been reported -

  • 6.9 % increase in Medicaid spending per person
  • 9.0% increae in spending per privately insured person
  • 12.6% increase in health insurance premiums paid in employer-sponsored plans
In the mid-70s, during the time I was a graduate student in nursing and working as an industrial engineer for a hospital corporation design team, I wrote an article about rising health care costs. I guess not much has changed.

This is part of the reason I encourage people to look at their role in staying healthy, to keep their personal health care costs affordable.
