Growth in Out-of-Pocket Spending for Health Care: CYs 1980-2002Out-of-pocket spending includes spending by individuals for services not covered by health insurance, as well as copayments and deductibles.Out-of-pocket spending between 1991 and 1994 was suppressed as more households switched to managed care plans with lower cost-sharing requirements. Between 1994 and 1998 out-of-pocket spending growth accelerated, reaching its most recent peak in growth in 1998 (8.2 percent). In 2002, out-of-pocket spending increased 6.0 percent, its fastest pace since 1998.Over one-half of the growth in out-of-pocket spending in 2001 and 2002 was related to prescription drugs expenditures.Out-of-pocket spending for dental services contributed 17 percent of aggregate out-of-pocket spending growth between 1997 and 2002 and was the second-largest contributor to the level of out-of-pocket spending during this period.
