For three consecutive years, out-of-pocket healthcare spending has accelerated. In 2017, the JPMorgan Chase Institute released estimates of out-of-pocket healthcare spending levels and burden at the state and county level from the JPMorgan Chase Institute Healthcare Out-of-Pocket Spending Panel (JPMCI HOSP) data asset.
In a recent report, they describe the enhancements to, and key findings from, the updated JPMCI HOSP data asset that includes a first look at 2017 healthcare out-of-pocket spending trends.
In this webinar, Fiona Greig of the JPMorgan Chase Institute will provide an overview of year-over-year trends at the state and county level and for different demographic groups. Greig, along with Niall Brennan of the Health Care Cost Institute, will be discussing the importance of continuing to monitor levels and trends in out-of-pocket healthcare costs borne by families, as the JPMCI HOSP data asset seeks to do, detailing how key trends affect people’s choices regarding whether and when to consume care.
