Dr. Charles Roehrig is a Vice President, Institute Fellow, and founding director of Altarum’s Center for Sustainable Health Spending. His research interests include timelier tracking of health spending, determining its sustainable growth rate, and modeling its future growth. Healthcare is a billion-dollar industry. Within the healthcare industry, what does America spend the most money on? It’s not cancer, trauma and injury, or even heart conditions (although heart conditions were the costliest 10 years ago). Dr. Charles Roehrig talks about the study he conducted about the rising epidemic of mental health costs.
