Correct answer is: No Limit
There is no limit on how much of the federal budget is allocated to health care programs, and the U.S. is the only major industrialized country that does not have a limit. Most federal health programs are based on defined levels of benefits, but as the related costs and number of beneficiaries increase so does the amount of money needed to pay for the benefits. These federal health programs are on auto-pilot because they are considered mandatory spending. This means that as the amount of money needed to meet all obligations increases, the federal government must still make those payments.
