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

Expenditures for Physician and Clinical Services, by Source of Funds: Selected CYs 1990-2002Physician and clinical expenditures reached $339.5 billion in 2002, up 7.7 percent from 2001, marking the third consecutive year of growth above 7 percent.Private health insurance in 2002 accounted for the largest share of physician and clinical spending at 49.1 percent, while out-of-pocket and other private sources funded 10 percent and 7 percent, respectively. Public funds financed 34 percent of physician and clinical services.Although the Medicare fee schedule update for physician payments was negative in 2002, expenditures continued to increase due to the volume and intensity of services delivered, and to increase physician participation in the Medicare Program.Even though out-of-pocket physician and clinical spending growth accelerated for the second consecutive year, it was still slower than total growth for this category, causing the out-of-pocket share of total physician and clinical services spending to fall.
