Saint Paul, Minn.—September 4, 2018
So far in 2018, we’ve been to see a doctor or others who provide care more than 13 million times. We’ve been admitted to the hospital about 124,000 times, spending nearly 600,000 days hospitalized. While the number of visits, hospital admissions and length of time we’re hospitalized are all down on average compared to this time last year, the amount we spent on that care is up about 1 percent. Our Quarterly Insights show how 2018 compares to care in previous years, take a look.
