The dynamics of financing health care among various levels of government and the private sector are rapidly changing; structural
relationships among health care providers are also being altered. These changes are placing increased importance on State-level
expenditure estimates that will be instrumental in measuring the differential impact of Federal policies and State-specific
initiatives on individual States. This article presents personal health care expenditures (PHCE) for 1980-93. Statistics show
wide variation in level and rate of growth of regional spending per person. These statistics also quantify differences in
both the percent of health care costs in each State borne by Medicare and Medicaid and in the proportion of each State's economy
devoted to the provision of health care.
