The Health Care Cost Institiute (HCCI) has released the 2016 Health Care Cost and Utilization Report which is based on analyses of HCCI’s leading commercial claims database representing the under-65, employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) population in the United States. The report shows that spending per privately insured person grew by 4.6 percent, faster than in previous years. Price increases were the primary driver. The report covers the period 2012 through 2016 and includes claims data from four national insurance companies: Aetna, Humana, Kaiser Permanente, and UnitedHealthcare. This year, HCCI is making the report, its appendix tables, and the underlying machine-readable data tables publicly available.
