The national health expenditures (NHE) series presented in this report for 1960-96 provides a view of the economic history
of health care in the United States through spending for health care services and the sources financing that care. In 1996
NHE topped $1 trillion. At the same time, spending grew at the slowest rate, 4.4 percent, ever recorded in the current series.
For the first time, this article presents estimates of Medicare managed care payments by type of service, as well as nursing
home and home health spending in hospital-based facilities.
