National Health Expenditure (NHE): Projections 2009-2019
These projections show that in 2009, the NHE is projected to have reached $2.5 trillion and grown 5.7%, up from 4.4% in 2008, while the overall economy, still in recession, is anticipated to have fallen 1.1%. The expected acceleration in growth for 2009 was due in part to projected faster growth in the use of services as many sought treatment for the H1N1 virus and in part to expected increases in subsidized coverage provided through the COBRA. By 2019, national health spending is expected to reach $4.5 trillion and comprise 19.3% of GDP. As a result of more rapid growth in public spending, the public share of total health care spending is expected to rise from 47% in 2008, exceed 50% by 2012, and then reach 52% by 2019.
