The number of people with health insurance is on the rise and the cost of health care has been steadily climbing for years.
But despite the growth, Americans with health coverage have been less likely to see the cost rise, according to a report from the Kaiser Family Foundation released on Monday.
Kaiser’s analysis of data from insurance companies, hospitals, and other health care providers found that health spending has grown by a cumulative $6 billion since 2000.
That’s up from $5.5 billion in the early 2000s.
“We are seeing a dramatic increase in health care spending and we’re also seeing that it’s a growing share of overall health spending,” said David Cutler, director of the Kaiser Health Tracking Program, which analyzes health spending trends.
“But it’s not enough to pay for health care.
It has to be paid for by people who don’t have health insurance.”
For a growing population, rising health care costs are weighing on how much people can afford to spend on their health care, said Andrew Katz, chief economist at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and a co-author of the report.
“It’s a problem,” Katz said.
“In many ways, health care is the new business, and it’s growing rapidly.”
Kaiser said health care coverage grew by 12.3% from 2000 to 2015, while health spending increased by 3.6%.
The report also found that the share of the economy spent on health care increased by 1.9% in the last 10 years, while the share spent on education increased by 0.9%.
Health care spending rose more than 8% from 2013 to 2015.
The report comes as the U.K. is expected to begin charging people to use their personal devices for their health purposes by the end of 2020.
Health insurance costs have been growing at a faster rate in the U, but the Kaiser report noted that it has also been rising in other parts of the world.
For instance, health spending in China has increased almost 10% annually since 2010, while in India, spending rose 8.4% from 2011 to 2016.
Health spending in Europe rose by 10.6% between 2011 and 2016, while it increased 4.7% in China.
The U.N. estimates that by 2020, more than two-thirds of the population will be living in poverty, with some 14 million people in need of medical care.
