HEALTH CARE SPENDING: TRENDS AND EXPLANATIONS. Americans are reminded almost daily that total health care expenditures are high and increasing. Intotal health care spending exceeded $ billion and made up over 12 percent of the gross national product, up from percent in and double the level of the : Marilyn J.

Field, Harold T. Shapiro. InU.S. health care costs were $ trillion. That makes health care one of the country's largest industries. It equals % of gross domestic product.

Recent news reports have excitedly announced that healthcare inflation seems to be under control. Infor example the cost of health insurance premiums rose only 4% for a typical American Author: Peter Ubel.

The Coming Healthcare Inflation. All of this suggests that the real inflation in the cost of medical care hasn’t fully flowed into the price. The CPI inflation calculator uses the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) U.S.

city average series for all items, not seasonally adjusted. This data represents changes in the prices of all goods and services purchased for consumption by urban households. To investigate this possibility, we construct a composite price index that we can use to measure overall healthcare inflation.

We calculate this index in the same way as the core PCE index, but use only the medical goods and services components of the core PCE basket (see Dolmas for more details).Cited by: 1. Despite recent signs that efforts to slow the growth of U.S.
