From the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission’s Report to Congress – March 2018

Over the past four decades, total personal health care spending increased from $0.1 trillion to $2.8 trillion. During this period, out-of-pocket spending (cost sharing, deductibles and services not covered by insurance) as a share of total personal health care spending declined from 31% to 13%, while the shares accounted for by private health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid all increased. At the same time, Medicare has remained the single largest purchaser of health care in the United States.

The share of the Medicare population 85+ is projected to decline slightly through 2025, and then grow as Boomers continue to age. So the changing age structure of the Medicare population will exert somewhat less pressure on spending in the very near term, at least on a per capita basis, and then pressure will increase again over the longer term.
