Who pays for US healthcare, 1960 to 2010 | New Ideas ☼ Innovative Thinking | Scoop.it

Josh Cothran looked at who's paid for healthcare over the past five decades, with an animated Marimekko chart.

This interactive graphic uses data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to show national spending trends from 1960 to 2010 for health care by payer.
