Despite recession, children's health spending increased between 2009-2012, says new report
Date:2/26/2014

admissions for girls than for boys in all years studied. For girls, use rose from 9 admits per 1,000 teen girls in 2010 to 11 in 2012; for boys, MHSU admits rose from 7 per 1,000 teen boys in 2010 to 9 in 2012.

  • Out-of-Pocket Spending Rose: Slightly more than 17 percent of health care spending per child was paid out of pocket between 2009 and 2012, with out-of-pocket spending growing fastest in the Midwest and the South.

  • Prescription Spending Growth: In 2012, spending on prescriptions for children rose 7.1 percent, 2.1 percentage points faster than in 2011, and 2.3 percentage points faster than in 2010. Higher prescription expenditure growth was driven mainly by rising use of generics.

  • Spike in Meningitis Vaccines Among Teens: Federal policies may have helped prompt a 47.6 percent spike in meningitis vaccination rates among teens in 2011, and an additional 16.4 percent increase in 2012. These increases were likely due to vaccine recommendations promulgated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and benefit changes under the Affordable Care Act.

    "We hope this report illustrates where health care spending for children is occurring," says HCCI Senior Researcher Amanda Frost. "While we know that prices have fueled health care spending growth, this report shows where those dollars are going to help identify implications for children's health and care."

    The Children's Health Spending: 2009-2012 will be available on the Health Care Cost Institute's website on February 27, 2014 at 12:01 a.m. ET at: http://www.healthcostinstitute.org/childrens-health-spending-2009-2012.
