A tale of four cities: Medicare reform and competitive pricing. (1/31)The current payment system for Medicare + Choice (M + C) plans is based on prices calculated from administrative records. This system has been criticized as arbitrary, inefficient, and unfair. Most Medicare reform proposals would replace the current payment system with some form of competitive pricing. However, efforts over the past five years to demonstrate competitive pricing for M + C plans have been blocked repeatedly by Congress, even when the demonstrations were directly responsive to a congressional mandate. In the absence of political support, a demonstration of competitive pricing may be infeasible, and Congress could be forced to take the risky step of implementing broad Medicare reforms with very little information about their effects.

Who really wants price competition in Medicare managed care? (2/31)There is much policy talk about making Medicare more competitive, like private markets. But when reform proposals near implementation, local opponents of competition are often able to stop reform experiments. This paper reports on one recent example, the Competitive Pricing Advisory Committee, created by the 1997 Balanced Budget Act (BBA) to bring competitive bidding to Medicare + Choice plans. After design and site-selection choices were announced, members representing local interests were able to delay and perhaps kill competitive bidding before it could start, once again. A public report of this story may save future market-based Medicare reforms from a similar fate. (+info)
Is premium support the right medicine for Medicare? (3/31)This paper assesses the desirability of transforming Medicare into a premium-support system. I focus on three areas crucial to the future of Medicare: cost savings, beneficiary choice, and the stability of traditional Medicare. Based on my analysis of the Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare plan, I find substantial problems with adopting premium support for Medicare. In particular, projections of premium-support savings are based on questionable assumptions that the slowdown in health spending during 1993-1997 can be sustained and extrapolated to future Medicare performance. Consequently, premium support may inadvertently destabilize public Medicare and erode beneficiary choice without achieving substantial savings. (+info)
The health plan choices of retirees under managed competition. (4/31)OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of price on the health insurance decisions of Medicare-eligible retirees in a managed competition setting. DATA SOURCE: The study is based on four years of administrative data from the University of California (UC) Retiree Health Benefits Program, which closely resembles the managed competition model upon which several leading Medicare reform proposals are based. STUDY DESIGN: A change in UC's premium contribution policy between 1993 and 1994 created a unique natural experiment for investigating the effect of price on retirees' health insurance decisions. This study consists of two related analyses. First, I estimate the effect of changes in out-of-pocket premiums between 1993 and 1994 on the decision to switch plans during open enrollment. Second, using data from 1993 to 1996, I examine the extent to which rising premiums for fee-for-service Medigap coverage increased HMO enrollment among Medicare-eligible UC retirees. PRINCIPLE FINDINGS: Price is a significant factor affecting the health plan decisions of Medicare-eligible UC retirees. However, these retirees are substantially less price sensitive than active UC employees and the non-elderly in other similar programs. This result is likely attributable to higher nonpecuniary switching costs facing older individuals. CONCLUSIONS: Although it is not clear exactly how price sensitive enrollees must be in order to generate price competition among health plans, the behavioral differences between retirees and active employees suggest that caution should be taken in extrapolating from research on the non-elderly to the Medicare program.

Capitation and risk adjustment in health care financing: an international progress report. (5/31)In every system of health care, capitation payments have become the accepted tool used by health care purchasers in much of the developed world to determine prospective budgets. The policy prescription of capitation is perceived to address both equity objectives (of great importance in publicly funded systems of health care) and efficiency objectives (the dominant concern in competitive insurance markets). An examination of the current state of the art in 20 countries outside the United States in which health care capitation has been implemented confirms that capitation has assumed central importance within diverse systems of health care. In practice, however, the setting of capitation payments has been heavily constrained to date by poor data availability and unsatisfactory analytic methodology. (+info)
Confirmatory factor analysis of the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study (CAHPS) 1.0 Core Survey. (6/31)The National Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study (CAHPS) Benchmarking Database was used to assess the factor structure and invariance of the CAHPS 1.0 Core Survey. Separate analyses were conducted with Latino and non-Latino Caucasian consumers drawn from commercial and Medicaid sectors (N = 15,092). Results demonstrated that the 23 CAHPS 1.0 report items measure consumer reports of experiences with 5 aspects of health plan performance: Access to Care, Timeliness of Care, Provider Communication, Health Plan Consumer Service, and Office Staff Helpfulness. Four items assessed global ratings of care. Analyses revealed an identical pattern of fixed and free factor loadings across all samples. Magnitude of factor loadings and correlations among factors was essentially equivalent within a common health service sector. A higher order factor analysis revealed that rating and reports of care showed marked convergence. (+info)
Will choice-based reform work for Medicare? Evidence from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. (7/31)OBJECTIVE: . To examine the effect of premiums and benefits on the health plan choices of older enrollees who choose Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) health plans as their primary payer. DATA SOURCES: Administrative enrollment data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and plan premiums and benefits data taken from the Checkbook Guide to health plans. STUDY DESIGN: We estimate individual plan choice models where the choice of health plan is a function of out-of-pocket premium, actuarial value, plan attributes, and individual characteristics. Plan attributes include plan structure (fee-for-service/preferred provider organization, point-of-service, or health maintenance organization), drug benefit structure, and whether or not the plan covers other types of spending such as dental services and diabetic supplies. The models are estimated by conditional logit. Our study focuses on three populations that currently choose FEHBP as their primary health care coverage and are similar to the Medicare population: current employees and retirees who are approaching the age of Medicare eligibility (ages 60-64) and current federal employees age 65+. Current employees age 65+ are eligible for Medicare, but their FEHBP plan is their primary payer. Retirees and employees 60-64 are not yet eligible for Medicare but are similar in many respects to recently age-eligible Medicare beneficiaries. We also estimate our model for current employees age 55 and younger as a comparison group. DATA COLLECTION METHODS: We select a random sample of retirees and employees age 60-64, as well as all current employees age 65+, from the OPM administrative database for the calendar year 2001. The plan choices available to each person are determined by the plans participating in their metropolitan statistical area. We match plan premium and attribute information from the Checkbook Guide to each plan in the enrollee's list of choices. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We find that current workers 65+, 60-64, and non-Medicare eligible retirees are sensitive to variation in plan premiums. The premium elasticities for these groups are similar in magnitude to those of the age 55 and under employee group. Older workers and retirees not yet eligible for Medicare are willing to pay a substantial amount for plans with open provider networks. The willingness to pay for open networks is significantly greater for these groups than for younger employees. Willingness to pay for open network plans varies significantly by income, but varies little by age within group. CONCLUSIONS: Our finding that older workers and non-Medicare eligible retirees are sensitive to plan premiums suggests that choice-based reform of Medicare would lead to cost-conscious choices by Medicare beneficiaries. However, our finding that these groups are willing to pay more for open network plans than younger employees suggest that higher risk individuals may migrate toward higher benefit, higher cost plans. Our findings on the relationship between income and willingness to pay for open network plans suggest that means testing is a viable reform for lowering Medicare program costs. (+info)

How Health Plan Enrollees Value Prices Relative to Supplemental Benefits and Service Quality
Downloadable! This paper empirically assesses the relative role of health plan prices, service quality and optional benefits in the decision to choose a health plan. We link representative German SOEP panel data from 2007 to 2010 to (i) health plan service quality indicators, (ii) measures of voluntary benefit provision on top of federally mandated benefits, and (iii) health plan prices for almost all German health plans. Mixed logit models incorporate a total of 1,700 health plan choices with more than 50 choice sets for each individual. The findings suggest that, compared to prices, health plan service quality and supplemental benefits play a minor role in making a health plan choice.

Prognosis Blog » 2009 » July
11:35 am Those of us who were around during the contentious debates over President Clintons health reform proposal recall all too well why the White House was unsuccessful in getting reform passed. Even though Congress reached out to propose compromises and alternative ideas, the Administration refused to accept anything but its own plan. In the end, Congress decided that achieving nothing was better than passing severely flawed legislation.. Policymakers need to take great care not to go down that same road this time around. And, based upon current rhetoric, there is reason for concern.. Yesterday, when the Senate Health, Education Labor and Pensions Committee passed its version of reform legislation, one senator said that opponents of the bill were obviously against universal healthcare. Earlier in the day, one leading policymaker said that those who opposed the current bills emerging from the House leadership and the Senate HELP Committee were defending the status quo.. Thats simply not ...
Effectiveness of Clinton Reading Plan Questioned - Education Week
Almost universally, educators and policymakers note the sheer scope of the proposal--$2.75 billion to recruit and train 30,000 reading specialists and 1 million volunteers. It is analogous to President Kennedys pledge to put a man on the moon, Robert E. Slavin, a leading reading researcher at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and a creator of the Success for All reading program, said last week. That proposal excited a nation to attain what many thought was unattainable, and President Clintons plan has the potential to do the same for bringing students reading skills up to par, Mr. Slavin said. Although Mr. Clintons proposal would boost community involvement in education and infuse new life into existing tutoring programs, researchers and reading experts doubt that America Reads can offer the comprehensive approach that is necessary. You really have to be cautious about using volunteers. If these children are not learning to read easily, I dont know how untrained people can be ...
2009 ISCEBS Survey Findings. Employers Anxious About Retiree Medical Promises: ISCEBS/Towers Perrin Survey Findings. A weak economy and uncertainty about the direction, timing, or impact of national health care reform have plan sponsors in a quandary as to how to address the rising cost and continuing administrative burden of their retiree medical plans. These findings are from a new survey from ISCEBS and Towers Perrin. The survey also revealed a sense of urgency about the need to make changes to costly retiree medical plans, an urgency compounded by the historical lack of marketplace solutions for pre-Medicare retirees, creating further anxiety among plan sponsors. The joint nationwide survey conducted by Towers Perrin and the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists, now in its fifth year, drew responses from 155 organizations on issues and objectives influencing retiree medical strategy and design.

American Health Advantage: I dont wear glasses. Do I need to visit the eye doctor? - Discount Dental, Vision, Medical Plans
Yes. According to a recent survey by the American Optometric Association, 20 percent of adults who do not wear glasses or contacts have never been to an eye doctor. Many of them assume that since they do not have noticeable problems with their vision, it is not necessary to schedule an appointment. Unfortunately, this common misperception often has devastating consequences, particularly when it comes to glaucoma. The American Optometric Association reminds patients that glaucoma - a degenerative vision condition - often sneaks up without any signs of pain or other symptoms ...

last December, the stated goal of the January Arlington workshop was To identify goals, opportunities and policies pertaining to support for R&D in nanotechnology and related fields at NSF and other U.S. Government agencies. The agenda included discussion on issues, opportunities, and future directions for nanotechnology research and development. Following the workshop, senior federal officials are considering organizing a national nanotechnology initiative that could be included next year in the President Clintons federal budget request for Fiscal Year 2001. Vice President Al Gore announced a similar initiative, the Information Technology Initiative for the 21st Century (IT2), last month, which will be included in the Presidents FY-2000 budget request. Thomas Kalil, a senior director for economic policy at the White House National Economic Council, issued a call for such an R&D effort organized at the national level during the workshop. Such an initiative, said Kalil, would have five major ...

Hillary Clintons Bad Economics - Foreign Policy
Hillary Clinton thinks American workers arent getting enough of the fruits of their labors. Shes right: Wages havent risen in real terms because workers bargaining power has dwindled, so shareholders and owners keep walking away with the lions share of corporate profits. In her big economic speech last week, the candidate said she would offer firms a subsidy to give workers a taste of the profits, too. Yet theres virtually no robust evidence that workers would benefit - in fact, the lowest-paid workers might actually suffer under her plan.. Clintons plan would offer companies a two-year tax credit for 15 percent of profits shared with workers, with an even higher rate for small businesses, up to a cap of 10 percent of current wages. That means an employee earning $40,000 will be eligible for a profit-sharing payment of up to $4,000, which would net the employer a tax credit of $600. As I see it, the big questions about the plan are: 1) whether the profit-sharing portion of workers ...

Clintons San Diego Speech on Trump and Foreign Policy | The American Conservative
Clintons speech was focused mainly on denouncing Trump for many of his more outlandish statements, and his tendency to be all over the map on foreign policy provided her with plenty of material to use. She scored her best hits when she criticized Trumps desire to be unpredictable and his ignorance of the relevant issues, but she was trying a bit too hard when she painted Trump as someone likely to start a war over a personal slight. She said that it was easy to imagine that Trump might start a war after being insulted by a foreign government (its actually not that easy to believe), but it is even easier to imagine Clinton initiating a war for other very questionable reasons. Clinton was attempting to present herself as the responsible candidate, but it is impossible for an informed listener to forget that she has never seen a military intervention she didnt want to support.. She dinged Trump for his stated interest in being neutral in negotiations between Israel and Palestine, and ...

Hillary Clintons Flawed Algorithm Pissed Off the Data Science Gods | Data Science Association
Hillary Clintons campaign designed an algorithm named Ada to help make strategic decisions like where to place television ads to obtain the most electoral votes for the buck, where and when to deploy Clinton and others in person for optimal influence, and when it was safe to disappear and let the media focus on her opponent, Donald Trump.. Information about and deployment of Ada was a closely held secret and operated on a separate high performance computer where only a few top people had access. A massive amount of data, including daily public polling numbers and privately collected ground-level voter data were provided to Ada to run 400,000 plus simulations a day to evaluate scenario options. Ada crunched the data and the algorithm determined which states were important and not important to spend time and deploy resources to get critical electoral votes.. Yet Ada misinterpreted voter polling data, made a number of wrong and unreasonable assumptions, and was fooled by what she did not know. Ada ...

Health Care Policy and Marketplace Review: An Analysis of Senator Hillary Clintons Health Plan Proposal
Presumably the hidden taxes are the administration costs she would hope to cut by simplifying the sale and underwriting of health insurance as well as moving the system toward a greater use of information technology-including a patient medical record and investing in disease prevention. While it is likely these steps can save money, the market has been moving to improve health information technology for years and has found that process slow going and very expensive in the short term. The market has also invested heavily in wellness and disease management programs over the past 20 years with only modest success toward controlling healthcare costs ...
