Arizona Population (In Thousands) and Healthcare Dollars (In Billions) by Primary Market Segment, 2006
- Arizona’s 5.2 million residents under age 65 are projected to consume at least $18 billion in health care services in 2006.
- The majority of healthcare expenditures for this population ($11.8 billion, or 65%) are funded through employer-sponsored insurance coverage (large employers, small employers, and government/military).
- Despite increases in Medicaid rolls and expenditures in recent years, nearly 1 in 5 Arizonans (19%) remains uninsured in 2006.
- Healthcare expenditures shown do not include Behavioral Health.
- Medicaid figures do not include individuals who are also eligible for Medicare, as Medicare would be considered their “primary” source of health insurance coverage.
- Small employers are those employers who employ 50 or fewer employers. Remaining employers are classified as “large employers.”
- Individuals covered only through the Indian Health Service are included in the uninsured market segment.
- Due to rounding, numbers may not add to 100 percent.
