Medicare Spending by Program Service Categories, 2010

September 13, 2017

Medicare is the largest payer in the $2.5 trillion dollar health care sector. Medicare made up one-fifth of that amount. Where does this money go? In a previous post I examined where Medicare payments went in 2008, and today I update those figures for 2010.   Source: MedPAC. Report to The Congress: Medicare Payment Policy, March 2011.
