ABSTRACT
National health expenditures (NHE) were $1.6 trillion in 2002, a 9.3-percent increase from 2001. For the fourth consecutive year health spending grew faster than the overall economy as measured by the GDP. Growth in U.S. health care spending rose for most health services in 2002, with hospital spending once again the primary driver

Prescription Drug Expenditures Growth and Share of NHE: CYs 1990-2002Growth in retail sales in 2002 of prescription drugs outpaced other health spending, causing its share of NHE to continue to rise.Despite its relatively fast growth, the pace of drug spending growth has decelerated. Prescription drug spending in 2000 grew by 16.4 percent, followed by growth of 15.9 percent in 2001, and 15.3 percent in 2002.The slowdown in growth between 2000 and 2002 can be traced to fewer new drugs entering the market, a shift in prescriptions to more lower-cost generic drugs, and continued growth of tiered copayment plans.
