This report forecasts US healthcare insurance coverage and healthcare funding in US dollars to 2021. Total healthcare insurance coverage is provided in terms of the number of persons insured and uninsured. Also forecast to 2021 is the number of persons enrolled in the following major insurance types: employer-sponsored private insurance, direct-purchase private insurance, Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and Medicare. Because a person's healthcare insurance coverage may include more than one type of plan at one point in time and/or different types during a calendar year, double counting occurs. US healthcare funding is forecast to 2021 in US dollars and segmented by source as follows: private healthcare insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, out-of-pocket, healthcare investment, and other healthcare insurance programs.
To illustrate historical trends, healthcare insurance coverage, healthcare funding, and the various segments are provided in annual series from 2006 to 2016.
