  • Over the period 1969-2010, per enrollee Medicare spending grew by an annual average of 8.1 percent. Premiums for private health insurance for a common set of benefits (i.e., comparable to Medicare covered benefits – hospitals, physician services, DME, etc.) grew by an annual average of 9.4 percent. CBO’s long-term outlook compares the total rate of excess cost growth in Medicare and other payers and finds that Medicare has a higher rate of excess cost growth over the period 1975-2007 than other payers. The CBO excess cost growth measure differs conceptually from OACT’s comparison of Medicare spending and enrollee premiums in several important respects. For example, the CBO measure captures all health spending (including OOP spending), while the OACT measure compares only spending on covered benefits.
  • This chart compares the Medicare spending projections from the 2009 Medicare Trustees Report (pre-reform) with the 2010 Trustees Report, which was published after health reform became law.
