Please sign in to download this resource.

This inaugural Health Care Cost and Utilization Report summarizes national trends in health care utilization and  cost, focusing on 2009 to 2010. Large quantities of private claims data are needed for a more complete picture of the entire health care system  than can be had by looking at publicly  available data. Few researchers have  access to private claims data, and then  generally from only one commercial  insurer. By including insurers whose  combined membership comprises almost 40 percent of the privately insured population, this report provides new, critical information to the  public about health care costs. The  2010 report analyzed three billion  claims for individuals covered by  group employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI), representing approximately 20 percent  of all individuals  with ESI.  Published: 2012
