Infographic: The Rising Cost of Health Care

Posted on December 17, 2015

The Massachusetts Health Policy Commission this week released its 2015 Cost Trends Report examining the cost of health care and health insurance in the commonwealth. Per-person spending on health care grew at less than the 3.6 percent overall economic growth rate, though overall spending grew at 4.8 percent. The bottom line is that health care spending continues to divert precious resources from employers, families and state government.
