A 2020 view of national health spending

A study released by researchers at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services projects that U.S. health care spending will grow rapidly over the next several years. Expanded coverage from the Affordable Care Act of 2010 is likely to increase demand for health services, particularly prescription drugs and physician and clinical services. The government share of health spending is projected to rise to 31 percent by 2020, up from 27 percent in 2009.
