The Concentration of Health Care Expenditures profiles the concentration of illness in the United States, including costs, growth rates and characteristics of the underlying populations. As the introduction states:

"The rate of growth of Personal Health Expenditures in the United States has raised alarm in many quarters. As a consequence, there has been a never-ending litany of causes supposed and solutions offered to stem the rise in incidence, procedures, technology utilization and unit price escalation. Some have focused on tort reform, others on variation in care, and still others on prevention and wellness. The underlying problem, however, is that a small but increasing number of people with high cost illness account for the vast majority of health expenditures."

Additional publications include:

-- Malpractice, Defensive Medicine and Health Care Costs

-- Who Has Health Care Coverage In the US and From What Source

-- Sources, Expenditures and Burden of US Health Care Dollars
