  • Total US government spending is actually higher because of tax breaks for purchase of insurance. Estimate this as $1000 per capita so that our taxes pay $4900 per person toward health care, more than 9 other industrialized countries.
    Why is this?
  • Industry of Denial Management – spend $1.50 to be sure you don’t get $1.00 more of care than you deserve.
    Al Gore, the inconvenient truth…. (? Insert video clip)
    Having multiple insurance companies is inefficient and wasteful.
    The “marketplace” penalizes efficiency, encourages inconsistency, and has absolutely no demonstrable relationship between the price of any single health care product and its actual value.
  • It has been estimated that by 2026 the expansion will be responsible for adding 22,388 new jobs to Colorado’s economy, with 14,357 of those jobs being added in the first 18 months of the expansion. The same study projects an additional $4.4 billion in additional economic activity for the state as a direct result of the expansion.
     
    Over 50% of the people who would be newly eligible under this expansion are people who are working. Many people who work in retail services, have jobs in construction, take care of other people’s children, and work in the agriculture industry will qualify for coverage under this expansion. In enacting this expansion, Colorado will be helping hardworking families stave off financial disaster because of accident or injury while also giving those families access to preventative care.

    DENOMINATOR DEFINITION:
    A 20% random sample of the enrollment file for beneficiaries age 65-99 enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B, selected on the basis of the terminal digits in the Social Security number. Patients enrolled in risk-bearing health maintenance organizations (HMOs) are excluded.
    ADJUSTMENTS:
    Rates are adjusted for age, sex and race using the indirect method, using the U.S. Medicare population as the standard. Gender-specific rates are age and race adjusted; race-specific rates are age and sex adjusted.
  • A small proportion of the U.S. population accounts for half of all U.S. health care spending. The 5% of the population with higher health care expenses (≥$17,402 annually) was responsible for nearly half (49.5%) of total health care spending, while the 50% of the population with the lowest expenses (<$851) accounted for only 2.9% of total spending.
