If current laws and practices continue, health expenditures in the United States will reach $1.7 trillion by the year 2000,
an amount equal to 18.1 percent of the Nation's gross domestic product (GDP). By the year 2030, as America's baby boomers
enter their seventies and eighties, health spending will top $16 trillion, or 32 percent of GDP. The projections presented
here incorporate the assumptions and conclusions of the Medicare trustees in their 1992 report to Congress on the status of
Medicare, and the 1992 President's budget estimates of Medicaid outlays.
