How Much Are You Spending on Healthcare, and How Much Is Your Insurer?

I have been writing a lot lately about out-of-pocket costs for health care in United States. In my research on this topic, I came across the following picture, which shows how much insurers are spending on healthcare, among people in the United States receiving insurance through their employers, and also how much those employees are spending out-of-pocket for their medical care. Both are rising, but out-of-pocket spending is rising much more quickly.

No evidence yet that my obsession with healthcare costs is misplaced.
