  • Infographic: Visualizing Health Care Costs

    September's Visualizing Health Policy, a new monthly feature in JAMA, illustrates how health care costs in the United States have surged over the past 50 years. The infographic, created by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), shows how health care spending is unevenly distributed within the US population, with only half the population accounting for more than 97% of health care costs; how health care costs are putting pressure on US families; how the United States spends more per person for health care than other countries; and how the cost of health insurance premiums has increased in the past decade for both workers and employers.

    Archived infographics are available on KFF's website
