Abstract
The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) has importantly revised the methodology for estimating annual national health expenditures. Among other changes, the revisions estimated out-of-pocket spending directly, disaggregated expenditures to a greater degree, and reduced undercounting and double counting. Estimates of total spending and out-of-pocket spending changed. This article summarizes a meeting of a technical advisory panel, convened by HCFA, that reviewed the modifications adopted and made recommendations for future revisions.
