Abstract
This article distributes the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) estimates of 1995 personal health care expenditures (PHCE) according to sex, age, and diagnosis for each type of health care service. Aggregate and per capita expenditures are reported for 18 broad categories of disease classified according to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9-CM). Special emphasis is given to expenditures for persons age 65 or over, the segment of the population with the highest expenditures. These results show how the relative importance of medical conditions and type of health services differs between the sexes and changes with increasing age.
