Subsidyscope — Health Sector

Quick Summary

Subsidyscope finds that the federal role in the Health sector is larger than any other sector studied In FY2010, the government reported spending at least $7435 billion on health-related grants and tax expenditures

The federal government spent approximately $555.7 billion in fiscal year 2010 on grant programs that may provide a subsidy to the Health sector. This funding, administered by seven agencies across more than 270 active programs, accounted for almost 68 percent of all government grants made that year ($822.6 billion). This makes grants in the Health sector the largest of all the sectors analyzed by Subsidyscope. This is due to the fact that Medicare and Medicaid make up 60 percent of all grants payments reported in USASpending.gov in fiscal year 2010; the same programs make up 89 percent of all health grants in the same year.
