The containment, regulation, or restraint of costs. Costs are said to be contained when the value of resources committed to an activity is not considered excessive. This determination is frequently subjective and dependent upon the specific geographic area of the activity being measured. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Health insurance providing benefits to cover or partly cover hospital expenses.
An approach to health care financing with only one source of money for paying health care providers. The scope may be national (the Canadian System), state-wide, or community-based. The payer may be a governmental unit or other entity such as an insurance company. The proposed advantages include administrative simplicity for patients and providers, and resulting significant savings in overhead costs. (From Slee and Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993, p106)
Processes or methods of reimbursement for services rendered or equipment.
Economic aspects related to the management and operation of a hospital.
A method of examining and setting levels of payments.
The actual costs of providing services related to the delivery of health care, including the costs of procedures, therapies, and medications. It is differentiated from HEALTH EXPENDITURES, which refers to the amount of money paid for the services, and from fees, which refers to the amount charged, regardless of cost.
The amounts spent by individuals, groups, nations, or private or public organizations for total health care and/or its various components. These amounts may or may not be equivalent to the actual costs (HEALTH CARE COSTS) and may or may not be shared among the patient, insurers, and/or employers.
Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.
The amount that a health care institution or organization pays for its drugs. It is one component of the final price that is charged to the consumer (FEES, PHARMACEUTICAL or PRESCRIPTION FEES).
The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, or QUALITY OF LIFE. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.
Costs which are directly identifiable with a particular service.
Provisions of an insurance policy that require the insured to pay some portion of covered expenses. Several forms of sharing are in use, e.g., deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments. Cost sharing does not refer to or include amounts paid in premiums for the coverage. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.

Can restrictions on reimbursement for anti-ulcer drugs decrease Medicaid pharmacy costs without increasing hospitalizations? (1/808)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the impact of a policy restricting reimbursement for Medicaid anti-ulcer drugs on anti-ulcer drug use and peptic-related hospitalizations. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: In addition to U.S. Census Bureau data, all of the following from Florida: Medicaid anti-ulcer drug claims data, 1989-1993; Medicaid eligibility data, 1989-1993; and acute care nonfederal hospital discharge abstract data (Medicaid and non-Medicaid), 1989-1993. STUDY DESIGN: In this observational study, a Poisson multiple regression model was used to compare changes, after policy implementation, in Medicaid reimbursement for prescription anti-ulcer drugs as well as hospitalization rates between pre- and post-implementation periods in Medicaid versus non-Medicaid patients hospitalized with peptic ulcer disease. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Following policy implementation, the rate of Medicaid reimbursement for anti-ulcer drugs decreased 33 percent (p < .001). No associated increase occurred in the rate of Medicaid peptic-related hospitalizations. CONCLUSIONS: Florida's policy restricting Medicaid reimbursement for anti-ulcer drugs was associated with a substantial reduction in outpatient anti-ulcer drug utilization without any significant increase in the rate of hospitalization for peptic-related conditions.  (+info)

Mixed signals: public policy and the future of health care R&D. (2/808)

The incentives facing health care research and development (R&D) are influenced by the ambiguous signals sent by private and public insurance decisions affecting the use of, and payments for, existing technologies. Increasingly, that uncertainty is exacerbated by confusion over technologies' impact on health care costs, how costs are to be measured, and the social difficulty of determining medical "need" for purposes of insurance coverage. R&D executives appear to believe that "major" advances are more likely to win such coverage and thus to be profitable. The products that result, therefore, may make the current policy dilemma of cost containment versus service restriction more acute rather than less so. If the aim of policy is to cut costs, innovative remedies are necessary.  (+info)

Containing health costs in the Americas. (3/808)

In recent years, a series of policy measures affecting both demand and supply components of health care have been adopted in different Latin American and Caribbean countries, as well as in Canada and the United States. In applying these measures various objectives have been pursued, among them: to mobilize additional resources to increase operating budgets; to reduce unnecessary utilization of health services and consumption of pharmaceuticals; to control increasing production costs; and to contain the escalation of health care expenditures. In terms of demand management, some countries have established cost-recovery programmes in an attempt to offset declining revenues. These measures have the potential to generate additional operating income in public facilities, particularly if charges are levied on hospital care. However, only scant information is available on the effects of user charges on demand, utilization, or unit costs. In terms of supply management, corrective measures have concentrated on limiting the quantity and the relative prices of different inputs and outputs. Hiring freezes, salary caps, limitations on new construction and equipment, use of drug lists, bulk procurement of medicines and vaccines, and budget ceilings are among the measures utilized to control production costs in the health sector. To moderate health care expenditures, various approaches have been followed to subject providers to 'financial discipline'. Among them, new reimbursement modalities such as prospective payment systems offer an array of incentives to modify medical practice. Cost-containment efforts have also spawned innovations in the organization and delivery of health services. Group plans have been established on the basis of prepaid premiums to provide directly much or all health care needs of affiliates and their families. The issue of intrasectorial co-ordination, particularly between ministries of health and social security institutions, has much relevance for cost containment. In various countries, large-scale reorganization processes have been undertaken to eliminate costly duplications of resources, personnel, and services that resulted from the multiplicity of providers in the public subsector. Given the pluralistic character of the region's health systems, an important challenge for policy-makers is to find ways to redefine the role of state intervention in health from the simple provision of services to one that involves the 'management' of health care in the entire sector.  (+info)

The effect of type of hospital and health insurance on hospital length of stay in Irbid, North Jordan. (4/808)

The study aimed at examining the effects of type of hospital and health insurance status on hospital length of stay for three identified medical and surgical conditions. Medical records of 520 patients for the year 1991 were reviewed in one public and one private hospital. Comparison of hospital length of stay for the private (n = 185) versus public sector patients (n = 335) was carried out. The effect of presence of health insurance (n = 189) and the lack of it (n = 325) was also studied. It was found that the average length of stay in the public hospital was significantly longer than the private one (3.3 versus 2.7 days). In addition, insured patients had significantly longer hospital length of stay (3.3 versus 3.0 days). The results of the multi-variate analysis showed that after socioeconomic factors and clinical conditions of patients were adjusted for, the influence of hospital type and health insurance on hospital length of stay was about one day. The paper also discusses the need to base hospital cost-containment strategies on studies of hospital behaviour and performance.  (+info)

An innovative approach to reducing medical care utilization and expenditures. (5/808)

In a retrospective study, we assessed the impact on medical utilization and expenditures of a multicomponent prevention program, the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health (MVAH). We compared archival data from Blue Cross/Blue Shield Iowa for MVAH (n = 693) with statewide norms for 1985 through 1995 (n = 600,000) and with a demographically matched control group (n = 4,148) for 1990, 1991, 1994, and 1995. We found that the 4-year total medical expenditures per person in the MVAH group were 59% and 57% lower than those in the norm and control groups, respectively; the 11-year mean was 63% lower than the norm. The MVAH group had lower utilization and expenditures across all age groups and for all disease categories. Hospital admission rates in the control group were 11.4 times higher than those in the MVAH group for cardiovascular disease, 3.3 times higher for cancer, and 6.7 times higher for mental health and substance abuse. The greatest savings were seen among MVAH patients older than age 45, who had 88% fewer total patients days compared with control patients. Our results confirm previous research supporting the effectiveness of MVAH for preventing disease. Our evaluation suggests that MVAH can be safely used as a cost-effective treatment regimen in the managed care setting.  (+info)

Economic winners and losers after introduction of an effective new therapy depend on the type of payment system. (6/808)

An effective therapy for a costly illness has economic consequences. There may also be differences between provider costs and payer costs and initial versus long-term costs; costs may also vary with the reimbursement scheme. Consider the case of an effective therapy to prevent restenosis after coronary angioplasty. Assume that the initial provider cost of angioplasty is $12,000 and that restenosis within 6 months results in repeat angioplasty in 20% of cases, with a follow-up cost of $2,400, or $14,400 total. Assume that a therapy costs $1,000 per angioplasty and decreases restenosis by 50%, resulting in repeat angioplasty in 10% of cases. This will result in an initial cost of $13,000 and a follow-up cost of $1,300, or $14,300 total. The total societal costs will be -$100, a slight savings. Thus, the $1,100 cost of therapy is offset by reduced costs associated with restenosis, and the societal costs are almost neutral. Assume that under fee for service providers charge costs plus 10% and that without the new therapy either a package price or a capitated system is revenue neutral. Changes in costs resulting from therapy to prevent restenosis are as follows (plus sign indicates cost or loss; minus sign indicates savings or profit): [table: see text] Under fee for service, the payer takes the risks, and the economic consequences to providers are minimal. The situation is reversed under capitation. For whoever takes the risk, there is an initial loss to pay for the therapy, but a long-term gain due to less restenosis. Under package pricing, the providers lose because of the cost of therapy and fewer procedures, while the payers gain. A new therapy, even if it is revenue neutral to society overall, may have considerable economic consequences, which vary with time and with the different perspectives of providers and payers.  (+info)

Continuous quality improvement decreases length of stay and adverse events: a case study in an interventional cardiology program. (7/808)

A study was performed to assess the effectiveness of continuous quality improvement in achieving a better quality of care for patients undergoing coronary interventions. Increasing utilization of new coronary interventional devices has incurred a higher incidence of complications, prolonged hospital stay, and related costs. Using a clinical information system, we adopted continuous quality improvement to control the incidence of complications and postprocedural length of stay. Multiple regression analysis and a matched case-control study were performed to detect complications related to postprocedural length of stay and their causes among 342 patients. The results led to the modification of the postprocedural heparin anticoagulation protocol, which was followed by the introduction of a ticlopidine-based poststent anticoagulation regimen. Two sequential groups of patients (n = 261, n = 266) were selected to compare postprocedural length of stay and frequency of complications with those for the first group. Adjustments were made for patients and procedural characteristics through stratification and multiple regression methods. Blood transfusion was the most important predictor of prolonged hospital stay (partial R2 = 0.26, P < 0.01). A high level of postprocedural anticoagulation and intracoronary stent use were significantly associated with blood transfusion (P = 0.01, P = 0.02, respectively). The comparison among the three groups showed that heparin protocol change reduced only postprocedural length of stay (P < 0.001) for patients without stents, whereas the stent change in anticoagulation protocol significantly reduced both transfusion and hospital stay for patients with stents (P < 0.001, P < 0.05, respectively). Continuous quality improvement based on clinical information is promising to control both complications and hospital costs. Physician involvement is necessary throughout the process.  (+info)

Diabetes management: current diagnostic criteria, drug therapies, and state legislation. (8/808)

The policies, standards, guidelines, and criteria that each member of the healthcare team uses to assist in the delivery of comprehensive healthcare are constantly being defined and redefined. This article has discussed many of those changes as they relate to diabetes management. The entire healthcare team must have a working knowledge of these changes so that they can continue to deliver the best possible care to patients with diabetes. Improvements in quality of life, decreases in mortality and morbidity, and subsequent declines in healthcare costs will benefit both individual patients and society. The profession of pharmacy has realized the need for additional education and training in managing the patient with diabetes. Many colleges of pharmacy, as well as companies in the pharmaceutical industry, are offering diabetes certification and diabetes disease management programs to pharmacists to enhance their ability to manage these patients (Lyons T, Gourley DR, unpublished data, 1997. Similar efforts in diabetes management have been made in other health professions as well, such as nursing.  (+info)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Recent theoretical research suggests that property taxation has incentive effects that can help control cost problems in the public sector. The institutional setting in Norway allows this first empirical investigation of the incentive effect of property taxation, since we can separate between local governments with and without property tax. The raw data of the variation in the unit cost level for utilities show that local governments with property tax have 20% lower unit cost. Using both linear regression and propensity score matching, we are not able to wash out the difference in unit costs. Our interpretation is that having a visible and controversial local tax related to property stimulates voter interest in local government activities and thereby may help cost control.
As the health care debate drags on, I often hear this from both supporters and opponents of reform: theres really nothing in the reform bill to control health costs. Thats just not true of course. From the CBO estimates that the Senate reform bill actually reduces the federal deficit by over $100 billion to the substantial efficiencies and reform in Medicare that lower costs by hundreds of millions of dollars, there are many changes for the better.. However, what Congress has found in creating health reform is that there is no magic bullet out there to reduce costs. Thats why the Senate bill contains a slew of strategies and pilot programs aimed at achieving this goal. Some will have an effect - thats why the federal deficit is reduced. Others may or may not, but we have to try and then use the techniques with the best results for long-term cost control.

Economic environment. Expenditure on the publicly-funded health care system as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) is one of the lowest in the European Union (6.3% in 2017). It is likely that tensions will increase between the opportunities for health care financing (due to moderate GDP growth in Spain13) and trends in health spending, which is growing in all Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries at a faster rate than GDP.14 There are basically 2 ways to alleviate this tension: cost control or improved efficiency. Cost control has been the strategy applied in Spain, one of the OECD countries that has made the deepest cuts in health spending.15 While cost control is simple and immediate, the efficiency approach requires wisdom, planning, and involvement of professionals in the management of the system; this is the course of action championed and investigated by the SEC in this project..

Sound risk management and cost controls give confidence to consumers that the program will deliver on all of its promised future obligations. The funding structure of the program is important. Because the need for LTC increases with age, there is good reason for the sake of program sustainability to design the program using systematic prefunded pooling of homogenous risks in which participants make substantial contributions during their working years, continue to contribute during their retirement years, and receive most of their benefits in the last few years of life or possibly die without ever needing LTC. A reasonable fear of consumers is the risk that the program runs out of money precisely at the point where the participants are most in need and unable to care for themselves. This risk can be minimized by designing cost controls into the program. Controls may need to change when the markets environment changes over time. For example, if the reform were to restrict initial underwriting on ...

Largely because of ruthless expense reduction, Mr. Cooper -- former president and cost-cutting specialist at San Francisco-based BankAmerica Corp. -- lifted Goldome into the black. In 1988, the bank posted a net loss of $119 million. By contrast, in 1990 the bank earned $37.5 million.. Nonetheless, Goldome remained starved for capital, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. last month parceled out the Buffalo banks franchise to Albany-based KeyCorp and First Empire State, also of Buffalo.. Shortly before stepping down from his post as chief executive officer at Goldome, Mr. Cooper summed up some of his accomplishments.. Many people talk about cost cutting the way they used to talk about the four-minute mile. Too often, they start by assuming that it simply cant be done.. But it has ...

To assist in the work of evaluating the Health Care Cost Containment Law of 2012 (Chapter 224), the Office of the State Auditor (OSA) assembled an Advisory Committee consisting of individuals representing many facets of the health care market: providers, payers, the business community, representatives of the health care workforce, health care advocates, and representatives from academia who conduct research in the health care and/or public health fields. The purpose of the Advisory Committee is to provide feedback on our research plans, the data used in this project, and the analysis conducted on that data. The Advisory Committee helps to ensure that the right questions are being asked, that assumptions are challenged where appropriate, and ultimately, that reports and recommendations to the Legislature are meaningful and useful toward the end-goal of achieving cost containment in the Commonwealths healthcare market. ...

The costs of information technology (IT) in large multinational companies (MNCs) often constitute a significant portion of the companys total yearly turnover. IT departments are on one hand expected to return value to business, but are on the other hand often prone to cost reductions. Thus, it is not unusual that IT management chooses to focus on cost cutting rather than cost control in order to meet the companys financial targets. Understanding cost drivers in IT is not always evident, making it difficult for managers to know what performance indicators that should be tracked. This study addresses the issue of cost control and performance measurement in IT departments, in the form of a case study carried out at the IT department of a large Swedish MNC in the telecommunications industry. The case company is divided into two parts: Enterprise and Engineering, where Enterprise provides the organization with IT in form of printers, personal computers, applications, IT support and communication ...
The recent economic downturn has left New York actor Alex Hayes without the means to pursue his dream. The cost of paying off his student loans, rent, and bills, and the rising costs of groceries have left him too broke to take acting classes and buy new headshots. The ever-rising cost of living has really put a damper on the amount of energy and work I can put into my career, said Hayes, who doesnt even suffer the added expense of filling his gas tank like most working actors in Los Angeles.. Across the country, inflation and the ailing economy have forced everyday Americans to feel the squeeze and cut costs. But the situation can hit actors more profoundly because many of them live hand-to-mouth under normal circumstances. They must invest more money to get work than do those in most other professions, and they dont get paid for auditions -- let alone reimbursed for the transportation costs of attending.. Even established actors are being forced to downsize. Talent manager Phil Brock told ...

In its examination of the top 10 catastrophic illnesses that can prompt claims on stop-loss insurance policies, Sun Life Financial U.S. found self-insured employers paid more than half ($5.3 billion) of $9 billion in billed charges from 2012-15-receiving $2.3 billion in reimbursements through stop-loss protection.. Stop-loss insurance policies protect self-funded employers by limiting the risk associated with catastrophic claims.. More employers are self-funding their medical plans than ever before, and managing the rising cost of health care continues to be one of their central concerns, says Brad Nieland, vice president of Stop-Loss at Sun Life Financial U.S. By highlighting the conditions that create catastrophic claims and providing insights into trends influencing high costs, we can help employers anticipate what theyll see when self-funding and raise awareness about the importance of cost-containment resources and stop-loss insurance.. The fourth annual Top Ten Catastrophic Claims ...

Healthcare and social services encompass hospital medical care, outpatient care provided by physicians, urgent care, elderly and hospice care, dental work, and social assistance. About 75 percent of U.S. hospitals in this industry sector are not-for-profit institutions. New regulatory requirements require hospitals to decrease their hospital readmission rates to cut Medicare costs or face financial penalties. Implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) are expected to help control costs through efficiency. Cost containment is a priority for healthcare organizations.. The general rule of business is to control costs, increase revenues, and maximize profit. As revenues increase, the tendency of businesses it to add workers, purchase technology, and increase inventories. However, many companies grow themselves out of business by diverting cash into fixed assets and inventory investments in anticipation of expanding sales.. One way to avoid this situation is to reduce and control ...
With an increased emphasis on cost containment and regulatory scrutiny leading up to reform, the need for health plans to shift from defensive to proactive engagement regarding fraud and improper payments is critical. SAS and Stonegate Advisors LLC interviewed executives at 13 of the largest U.S. health plans to gain insights into the current reality of fraud and improper payments and to review strategies and tactics that can be put in place in anticipation of reform. This paper explains the major trends uncovered in this research that signify a fundamental shift in health plans approach to improper payments. ...

IT, Health Care and Mobility are three key focus areas for state and local government going into 2012 and beyond. All three areas have the potential to save governments millions and improve service delivery but they can also cause significant short term headaches in this era of austerity. CivSource spoke with Joe Doherty, EVP & COO, ACS Government Solutions about what states can do cut costs and improve performance in these areas. According to Doherty, state and local governments are running out of temporary fixes to tight budgets. States have really gone as far as they can go with temporary measures like furlough days, layoffs. It is becoming critical for officials to look at larger issues like IT, infrastructure, health care and how to make changes in outdated systems and business processes that cant effectively meet demand.. IT services are still providing significant opportunities for state and local governments to improve service delivery without asking for a large budget allocation. ...

This decision is a part of still unfolding restructuring that the company is going through under Chief Executive Kazuo Hirai.

The most costly three conditions, malignant neoplasm (cancer), chronic/end state renal disease (kidneys), and leukemia/lymphoma/multiple myeloma (cancer), represented 33% of all Stop-Loss claims payments that Sun Life Financial made from 2008 to 2011. The total of all Stop-Loss claims payments during the four-year study was $1.7 billion.. We conducted this research to bring greater focus to the significance of catastrophic claims for self-insured employers, said Scott Beliveau, Stop-Loss Vice President. We are committed to continuing the dialogue about how carriers, self-insured employers, brokers, and TPAs can work together to manage the high cost of catastrophic claims.. To help manage medical costs, the report recommends that self-insured employers analyze their self-insured strategy to make sure that it includes cost-containment best practices. The report provides important questions for the employer to consider, such as whether the following approaches are in use: wellness programs, ...
The cost of healthcare continues to be a hotly debated topic. In this current climate of reform and cost-containment, it may come as a surprise to you that theres an easy fix within Medicare that will help save precious healthcare dollars and improve care. It is called the Home Infusion Site of Care Act, and it is awaiting action from your Congress.. While physicians and patients generally prefer that intravenous medications be delivered at home, a glitch in Medicare is forcing patients to get their treatments in a hospital or nursing home setting. This means, for example, that a Medicare patient being treated for an infection with an IV drip must get that therapy in a far more expensive institutional setting rather than the comfort and safety of his or her own home. Even more concerning is the fact that because infusion therapy dispenses medication through a needle or catheter, patients treated in hospitals run an increased risk of attaining life-threatening infections such as MRSA that are ...
Its a pretty interesting subject: time was, hospitals counted on the use of surgical disposables for profit. Because of changes in Medicare reimbursement rules, they no longer could charge processing fees for cleaning and re-sterilizing reusable instruments, or for laundering surgical drapes; but they could charge for the use-once and throw-away (and nearly always non-biodegradable) stuff, and charge a reasonable marked-up price. There became, in other words, a perverse (and presumably unintended) disincentive regarding cost-containment. To the extent that hospitals are starting to be reimbursed with global fees (ie, they get x-thousand dollars to care for a colon-resection patient), the opposite has become true. The most efficient surgeon is, theoretically, the most desirable one. Yet so-called economic credentialling is almost never done; and when it is, theres generally nothing in it for the surgeon. Meaning people like me, who saved payors thousands of dollars per case, while still ...

Health & Wellness column: - Lets get one thing straight. No one is talking about healthcare reform.

The states decision to stop regulating hospital prices in 1992 was a mistake that unleashed the cost increases of today, writes Philip W. Johnston, a health care consultant and former state official. Yet for years since deregulation, the state government had been unwilling to impose new cost controls. Now, with the bills under consideration on Beacon Hill, state government is finally poised to become a player in health costs again.
U.S. News & World Report (Healthday) The rate of growth in U.S. health care spending is expected to pick up speed so that the nation will shell out $4.6 trillion for services by 2020, a new report finds.. And an increasing amount of that bill -- almost half -- will be paid for by government.. Growth in health care spending dipped to a historic low of 3.9 percent in 2010 because of the recession, the experts said. But the new report, from Medicares Office of the Actuary, projects that by 2014 -- when many provisions of the new health care reform law kick in -- growth in spending will accelerate to 8.3 percent..

Aaron, a Senior Fellow in Economics at the Brookings Institution, is unable to imagine any route to cost control that doesnt involve government coercion. In a 2005 Brookings white paper titled Health Care Rationing: What it Means, he represents the NHS as a system that has come to grips with what he sees as the inescapable necessity for rationing. Predictably, he rejects any alternative involving the market: The key to efficient market outcomes is that prices reflect costs of production. The market for health care does not operate that way. In other words, Aaron believes health care is a unique universe in which the market mysteriously fails to function and therefore cant be relied upon to contain costs. It never seems to have occurred to him that the markets alleged failure might be the result of government meddling ...

This would be straightforward and remove the incentive for providers to overprescribe because they get a cut. Most private insurers that pay for drugs that are administered during the course of an appointment already pay fee schedule instead of percentage fees. It is a simple, straightforward incentive correction that will save money and lead to more appropriate course of action for patients. And it wont pass as it takes money out of the pockets of the one of the most trusted professions and organized lobbies in the country. However, PPACAs Indepedent Payment Advisory Board could have a role in reducing this practice. IPAB, for those who need a refresher, is a board appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate that has the responsibility for cost control in Medicare if Medicare spending per beneficiary exceeds either the average of CPI-U and CPI-U medical components between 2015 and 2019 or the general rate of growth in the economy after 2019. IPAB cant ration, and it can not change ...
