Slow Health Spending Continues

New numbers from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Studies confirm that national health expenditures grew by the unusually low rate of 3.9% for the third year in a row in 2011 and held steady as a percentage of gross domestic product, according to the analysis, published on Monday in Health Affairs. The slow health spending growth continues to please budget forecasters and puzzle economists, who say that neither the recession nor the Affordable Care Act alone can explain the phenomenon.
