Expenditures for health care represent nearly one-seventh of the Nation's Gross Domestic Product, and they continue to be one of the fastest growing components of the Federal budget. In 1960, for example, health care expenditures accounted for about 5 percent of the GDP; by 2000, that figure had grown to more than 13 percent.
Although the rate of growth in health care costs slowed somewhat in the mid-1990s, it has once again started to rise at a rate that exceeds other sectors of the economy. Thus, identifying ways to contain health care costs and obtain high value for our health care investments continues to be a priority for the Nation, particularly for the public and private payers.
