Explore Trends in U.S. Health Spending

The Kaiser Family Foundation has released an update to the Health Spending Explorer, an interactive tool on the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker that allows users to analyze the most up-to-date data on U.S. health spending, then build, display and share the charts that are created. Five decades (1960-2014) of health spending data from the National Health Expenditure Account is included in the Explorer, including expenditures federal and local governments, private insurers and individuals on 15 categories of health services, including hospitals, physician and clinic care and prescription drugs.

Custom-made charts made in the Explorer may be easily shared through email, Twitter and Facebook and embedded on a web site. A short video tutorial provides instructions for the tool.
