What Are the Headlines Saying? Healthcare costs rising faster than the economy! & More people are uninsured! Sources: National Coalition on Health Care, March 20, 2007 U.S. Census Bureau, August 29, 2006
Americans Face a Healthcare Crisis! Healthcare costs continue to advance much faster than the rest of the U.S. economy: 6.9% increase in 2005 7.9% increase in 2006 7.7% increase in 2007 (projected) Sources: National Coalition on Health Care www.nchc.org/facts/cost.shtml; Hewitt Associates, October 9, 2006 Costs are slowing but still far exceed the rate of general inflation!
The Cost of Healthcare Insurance premiums have risen at a rate even greater than the rate of health care inflation. According to experts, “Consumers can expect to pay more for greater access to health care.” Source: PricewaterhouseCoopers, April 2006 Estimated Breakdown of Insurance Premiums with Medical Liability and Defensive Medicine Extracted, 2005
Persons Without Health Insurance Rising costs in healthcare are pushing up health insurance premiums and forcing Americans into the ranks of the uninsured. It becomes a problem if you are a member of the uninsured! Sources: U.S. Census Bureau, August 2006 (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities) www.cbpp.org/8-29-06health.htm 1998 — 41.4 million 2002 — 41.2 million 2003 — 43.6 million 2004 — 45.3 million 2005 — 46.6 million

Where Do the Largest Medical Expenses Occur? Hospital Confinement Surgical Expenses Emergency Room Charges Source: Paul Ginsburg, Bradley Strunk, Michelle Banker, John Cookson – Tracking Health Care Costs: Spending Growth Remains Stable at High Rate in 2005, Data Bulletin October 2006
Hospital Confinement vs. Doctor’s Office Bills Average hospital confinement includes room/board, surgical, miscellaneous, and emergency expenses. $20,000 was the average national hospital admission charge in 2006. * Source: Washington Post, October 2006 As compared to the larger medical expenses above, the average cost of a doctor’s office visit in 2006 was relatively low. It was only $200! *
