  • What Share of Beneficiaries' Total Health Care Costs Does Medicare Pay? (
  • The extent to which Medicare pays for the costs of beneficiaries' health care is a central issue in health policy. (
  • Although Medicare provides important coverage for hospital, physician, and other services, its cost-sharing requirements are sometimes substantial. (
  • This Data Digest estimates personal health care expenditures for Medicare beneficiaries in 2000. (
  • Projections of total personal health care expenditures for the Medicare population in the aggregate and the sources of payment for these expenditures are provided. (
  • To illustrate how Medicare's share varies across different populations, information is presented on expenditures for selected groups of beneficiaries (i.e., those not in institutions and those not in Medicare+Choice plans). (
  • The data show that, overall, Medicare paid for about half of beneficiaries' total health care costs in 2000. (
  • Payments of Medicare deductibles and other cost-sharing made by state Medicaid programs, private insurance plans, or 'other' public health insurance programs would be reflected as payments by the appropriate program, not as out of pocket. (
  • Medicare Part B, private supplemental insurance, or Medicare+ Choice premiums) are not counted as out-of-pocket costs to the individual who pays them. (
  • Total personal health care expenditures for all Medicare beneficiaries are estimated to have been about $470 billion in 2000. (
  • As shown in Table 1, Medicare paid about half (49.1%) of total personal health care expenditures for all beneficiaries in 2000. (

  • However, the health status of Medicare beneficiaries with cancer who were treated at PCHs and PPS teaching hospitals was not markedly different. (
  • The average risk score-a Medicare measure of overall health-of cancer beneficiaries at PCHs was comparable to that of cancer beneficiaries at PPS teaching hospitals both in the inpatient and outpatient settings. (
  • Under a PPS, Medicare pays hospitals a predetermined amount based on the clinical classification of each service they provide. (
  • PPS hospitals can retain any cost savings relative to their Medicare payments. (
  • In contrast, as required by the exemption, Medicare pays PCHs for inpatient services based on their reported costs, subject to an upper limit, as well as potential add-on payments. (
  • For outpatient care, Medicare pays PCHs at service-specific rates with an upward payment adjustment based on reported costs. (
  • In 2012, Medicare payments-both inpatient and outpatient-were substantially higher at PCHs than at PPS teaching hospitals in the same geographic area for beneficiaries with the same diagnoses or services. (
  • GAO estimated that PCHs received, on average, about 42 percent more in Medicare inpatient payments per discharge than what Medicare would have paid a local PPS teaching hospital to treat cancer beneficiaries with the same level of complexity. (
  • Similarly, Medicare outpatient payment adjustments to PCHs resulted in overall payments that were about 37 percent higher, on average, than payments Medicare would have made to PPS teaching hospitals for the same set of services. (
  • Furthermore, GAO found no association between the proportion of Medicare payments for cancer patient care and Medicare profit margins at PPS teaching hospitals, indicating that the PPS or an alternative payment methodology may be reasonable for cancer care. (
  • Because Medicare's payment methodology for PCHs lacks strong incentives for cost containment, it has the potential to result in substantially higher total Medicare expenditures. (
  • If, in 2012, PCH beneficiaries had received inpatient and outpatient services at nearby PPS teaching hospitals-and the forgone outpatient adjustments were returned to the Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund-Medicare may have realized annual savings of almost $0.5 billion. (
  • To control costs and reward efficiency, Medicare pays the majority of hospitals under PPSs, which make payments on the basis of the clinical classification of each service. (
  • This report compares (1) the characteristics of PCHs with those of PPS teaching hospitals, (2) the inpatient and outpatient methodologies Medicare uses to pay PCHs and PPS teaching hospitals, and (3) Medicare payments to PCHs with payments to PPS teaching hospitals. (
  • Congress should consider requiring Medicare to pay PCHs as it pays PPS teaching hospitals, or provide the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) with the authority to otherwise modify how Medicare pays PCHs. (
  • RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC- A new model for hospital payments in Maryland has reduced both total expenditures and total hospital expenditures for Medicare beneficiaries in its first two years of operation, according to a new report from researchers at RTI International. (
  • In 2014, the state of Maryland and the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began testing an alternative payment structure for inpatient and outpatient hospital services. (
  • Known as the All-Payer Model, the new system limits hospitals' revenues from Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers to a global budget for the year. (
  • The goal of the model is to limit per capita total hospital cost growth for both Medicare and all payers and to generate $330 million in Medicare savings over 5 years. (
  • Medicare-granted extensions for filing cost reports, if applicable, shall also apply to Medicaid cost reports. (
  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the average estimated submitted charges for 30 types of hospital outpatient procedures such as clinic visits, echocardiograms, and endoscopies. (

  • As the Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) moves toward a bundled payment model that will reimburse hospitals based on the expected costs of episodes of care, it has become important to understand potential risk factors that are associated with increased inpatient expenses for hip fracture patients.

  • She currently leads the development of all-cause and potentially preventable hospital readmission measures for the Medicare programs' post-acute care quality reporting and value-based purchasing programs. (
  • Medicare skilled nursing facility (SNF) residents with chronic wounds require more resources and have relatively high healthcare expenditures compared to Medicare patients without wounds. (
  • A retrospective cohort study was conducted using 2006 Medicare Chronic Condition Warehouse claims data for SNF, inpatient, outpatient hospital, and physician supplier settings along with 2006 Long-Term Care Minimum Data Set (MDS) information to compare Medicare expenditures between two groups of SNF residents with a diagnosis of pressure, venous, ischemic, or diabetic ulcers whose wounds healed during the 10-month study period. (
  • Increasing the number of SNF residents receiving the care described in this study could lead to significant Medicare cost savings. (
  • In particular, this Statistical Brief presents data on patient demographics and on resource use and outcomes of hospital stays for super-utilizers compared with stays for other patients by expected payer (Medicare, private insurance, and Medicaid). (

  • In this research, the authors explore the association of cost and quality of care indicators for Medicare in the United States. (
  • The results indicate that Medicare cost is not positively associated with quality of care, suggesting that patients in higher-priced facilities do not necessarily receive better quality of care. (
  • The authors show how a national effort to standardize costs of heart-related Medicare procedures could result in substantial savings in healthcare spending. (

  • Gross costing first calculates the total costs of the service at the organizational, provider, or departmental level, then disaggregates the total costs to the cost centres (departments or units to which costs are assigned), depending on the richness of the available data and the homogeneity of the services provided. (
