Abstract
In this article, the authors recast health care costs into payer categories of business, households, and Federal and State-and-local governments which are more useful for policy analysis. The burden that these costs place upon the financial resources of each payer are examined for 1989 and for trends over time. For businesses, their share of health care costs continues to creep upward compared with other payers and relative to their own resources, despite many changes they are making in the provision of employer-sponsored health insurance to their employees.
