Children’s Health Care Spending Report 2007-2010:
Spending on Children’s Health Care Rising Faster than Adults
Despite a decline in the number of insured children and a drop in the use of costly health care services, spending on health care for children has grown faster than spending for adults over the past four years, according to a new report the from the Health Care Cost Institute. The Children’s Health Care Spending Report: 2007-2010 is the first of its kind to track changes in spending, prices and use of health care services by children covered by employer-sponsored health insurance.
The new report confirms findings from HCCI’s Health Care Cost and Utilization Report: 2010 released earlier this year that showed rising prices are the chief drivers of health care spending.
