Healthcare price inflation speeding up

Share this:


According to a report (PDF) from Altarum, healthcare prices grew 2.2  in April from a year earlier,  the highest rate since January 2012. Hospital price growth, the main culprit,  jumped 3.6 percent from a year earlier, mostly driven by a 4.6 percent price growth for Medicare patients and a 3.8 percent private-insurance price growth.

But Medicaid prices rose  only 1.6 percent.

More and more consumers are struggling to pay for the world’s most  expensive healthcare.
