Show Summary Details


The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, in its National Health Accounts (NHA), and the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), an agency of the Department of Commerce, in its National Income and Product Accounts (NIPA), each publish national data on expenditures for health care. The NHA show the interaction between health care services and funding sources and how these relationships change over time, while the NIPA provide an up-to-date, overall view of domestic and national production, its distribution, and its use as shown by the interrelated receipts and expenditures of producers, consumers, investors, government, and the foreign suppliers and customers of the United States. In an effort to improve the consistency of these two sets of estimates, HCFA and BEA are engaged in a joint program to reconcile the health care estimates in the NHA and in the NIPA. This chapter focuses on the reconciliation of hospital care and physician services.
