The United States spends more on health care than any other industrialized nation. In 2016, health care expenditure reached an estimated $3.35 trillion or $10,345 per individual. Cardiovascular disease represents the leading cause of death and disability as well as the most significant source of health care spending. This article reviews the current economic burden of heart disease in the United States, presents future projections, and explores factors driving cost growth in cardiovascular care.
