Introducing HCCI

The United States has a profound problem with health care spending. Rising health care costs are stifling economic growth, consuming increasing portions of the nation’s gross domestic product, and putting added burdens on businesses, the public sector, individuals, and families. In spite of heightened concerns about the harmful impacts of US health care spending, information about what is driving spending is incomplete.

To that end, the Health Care Cost Institute was established in 2011 as a non-profit, independent, non-partisan research institute dedicated to creating the United States’ most comprehensive source of information on health care activity and promoting research on the drivers of escalating health care costs.
