Title:
   Concentration of Health Expenditures in the U.S. Civilian Noninstitutionalized Population, 2014
Product type:
   Statistical Brief 497
MEPS component:
   Household Component
Publication date:
   November 10, 2016
Description:
   The distribution of spending is further described among sub-populations of interest based on age and insurance status, which are two key factors that jointly affect the likelihood that a person needs and receives care, subsequently impacting the magnitude of their health care expenditures. Characterizing the distribution of health care spending across these dimensions can help guide policy-makers toward effective interventions in high-cost groups with disparate spending distributions.
