Barnato, Amber E

The cost of health care in the United States has important generational considerations whether analyzed at a point in time, or over many years. The budgets of governments contain important information about the funding of public services, including health care, and the intra- and inter-generational implications of both the inherent tradeoffs, and the particular means of funding the services. End-of-life expenditures, while a significant component of the cost of health care, are not the primary consideration in the ethical or moral questions raised.
