Private Sources still the top contributor to total health expenditure in 2013

The country's total health expenditure (THE) went up by 11.7 percent, from PhP 471.1 billion in 2012 to PhP 526.3 billion in 2013. This could be mainly attributed to the large amount expended for health care by Private Sources, majority of which (82.6 percent) were disbursed by households (Private Out-of-pocket) for their health needs in 2013. Discounting the effect of inflation, THE grew by 8.5 percent from PhP 362.1 billion in 2012 to PhP 392.8 billion in 2013.
