From the MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE: Health spending in Minnesota rose by 3.1 percent in 2013, the fourth-lowest rate on record, but it's unclear whether it was a positive result of medical reforms or a negative sign that Minnesotans lacked the money to spend on care. The $40.9 billion in outlays on hospital care, outpatient exams, prescription drugs and other medical services in 2013 was a record, said a report released Thursday by the Minnesota Department of Health. But the increase paled in comparison to spending growth that averaged 8.5 percent annually from 1999 to 2008.
