How to save money in the US health care system in 2017?
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and its state and local counterpart, the Centers of Medicare and Medicare Services (Centers of Medicaid & Medicare Services), the average annual medical bill for US citizens has increased by $1,095 since 2012.
While the average medical bill increases every year, 2017’s figure is the highest ever, according to CMS.
The biggest jump occurred in 2016, when the average healthcare cost rose by $5,200 for US residents.
As of May 1, 2017, the average yearly medical bill is $1.16 trillion, up by $6,700 on the previous year.
However, the amount spent on healthcare has decreased by $4,300 from 2016, due to better economic conditions, the cost of healthcare services, and a decrease in healthcare spending related to the opioid crisis.
According to The Economist, the $1 trillion increase in the average health care bill from 2016 to 2017 is the largest single-year increase in health care spending since the 1960s.
It is also the largest annual increase since 2003, according the Congressional Budget Office.
The rise in healthcare costs is due to the increase in insurance premiums.
Between 2016 and 2017, premiums for private healthcare plans grew by more than 10% each year, according a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Healthcare costs have also increased dramatically due to a reduction in spending on health care services in the wake of the Affordable Care Act.
In addition, the increase has been driven by a number of factors, including a decrease of Medicaid payments and the impact of the healthcare law.
According to the New York Times, the Medicaid expansion in the Affordable Healthcare Act has increased healthcare spending by more in the first year of the law than in any previous year, due in large part to increased spending on healthcare services and the ACA’s expansion of coverage to cover people with pre-existing conditions.
While many Americans may be worried about paying for healthcare, the best way to avoid paying a huge healthcare bill in 2018 is to plan ahead and make smart choices.
The cost of insurance is always going to increase in 2017, but there are ways to save your money and reduce your healthcare costs.
