The 2016 Health Care Cost and Utilization Report is based on analyses of HCCI’s leading commercial claims database representing the under-65, employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) population in the United States.

We find that health care spending on the ESI population grew by 4.6% in 2016, an increase over the lower rates observed between 2012 and 2015.

This year, HCCI is making the report, its appendix tables, and the underlying machine-readable data tables publicly available.

Today, HCCI announces a major step to expand access to its data in order to enable more research on the trends in health care costs and spending among commercially-insured populations. In light of the ongoing debate around policy options to improve the American health care system, HCCI believes that broadening the pool of researchers who can access HCCI data will support a more informed conversation.

As of January 2018, HCCI’s new data access and pricing model will allow access to any researcher at any university in the United States.
