A scenario for health care expenditures 2003-2006
In this scenario growth is based upon developments in demand and supply of health care and upon assumptions about the effect of new medical-technological developments. For the health care sector an average annual growth rate of health care expenditure of 5.9% is predicted. This number is split-up in an average annual volume growth rate of 2.5% and an average annual health care price growth rate of 3.3%. Considering the uncertainty about the influence of technology a sensitivity-analysis has been carried out.
