What's Working to Control Costs
Without major changes in the way the U.S. pays for and delivers health care, total national health spending is projected to rise to $4.6 trillionóor nearly 20 percent of GDPóby 2020. In a new blog post, Commonwealth Fund president Karen Davis says policymakers looking for savings should "go where the money is," and focus on improving care for patients with multiple, high-cost conditions. The post is based on a presentation she gave at a Washington, D.C., briefing cosponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and The Commonwealth Fund.
