Congressional Budget Office forecasts per capita spending on health care for adults will rise 59% to 71% between 2007 and 2020 from $4550 to over $7200 (2009 dollars), depending on assumptions made relative to US obesity rates. Almost 2/3 of adults in US are overweight or obese. Published Sept. 2010, after health reform was enacted. With medical inflation since 2009, $7200 is now equivalent to about $9431.
