The Recent Rise in Health Care Inflation

Diane Alexander

Chicago Fed Letter, 2018, No 407

Abstract: Health care services inflation was consistently at or above 3% per year in the early 2000s, declined from around 3% at the end of the 2000s to under 1% in 2015, and then rebounded to just under 2% in early 2018. The low point in 2015 was a near-historical low, with health care services price growth bottoming out at a rate not seen since 1961.
