"My patients, and the rest of the American public, are doing the health insurance math and realizing the numbers are staggering. So is the Office of the Actuary in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. In a new report, recently published in Health Affairs, the office projected that U.S. healthcare spending will accelerate to an average rate of 5.8 percent per year, and that by 2020 the total amount spent for services will be a whopping $4.7 trillion, almost double what it is now and 20 percent of the gross domestic product."
