Healthcare prices to outpace inflation for the first time since 2010
The growth in U.S. healthcare prices is projected to outpace economywide inflation for the first time since 2010, the second report in a week to signal the end of a long stretch of restrained medical increases. This year, price increases for personal health expenditures are projected to rise 2.2 percent, compared with 1.9 percent for overall inflation, according to a report released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The findings confirmed a recent analysis warning that the U.S. could be at the cusp of a return to higher medical inflation.
