Health expenditure Australia 2012-13 (AIHW)

Health expenditure Australia 2012-13 was estimated to be $147.4 billion in 2012-13, 2.4% higher than in 2011-12 and the lowest growth since 1990-91. In 2012-13, governments provided $100.8 billion (or 68.3%) of total health expenditure.

Government funding of health expenditure fell in real terms for the first time in the decade by 0.6%, largely a result of a decline in Australian Government funding of 1.9%. State and territory government funding was also relatively low, growing just 1.4% in real terms in 2012-13.

In contrast, growth in non-government funding was relatively strong at 9.7%.
