Graph of the day: It’s the health-care prices, stupid


“The National Institute of Health Care Management has a new brief out that explores the factors driving up health-care spending, trying to explain why premiums have grown by 122 percent over the past decade.

The answer, at least in recent years, can be summed up in one word: Prices. The volume of health care that Americans used actually dropped between 2009 and 2010, then grew slightly between 2010 and 2011.”
