Medicare Managed Care: Trends in Benefits and Premiums, 2000-02


It is probably no accident that the decline in Medicare managed care enrollment in 2000 has coincided with an erosion of benefits offered by health plans. Indeed, research shows that beneficiaries join managed care plans mainly to receive better benefits at lower cost. This project will support the continued analysis of changes in Medicare+Choice plan benefits and premiums and create a research agenda to achieve a more complete understanding of the supplementary insurance choices available to beneficiaries. Information developed through this project will be critical as the next administration and Congress decide how to respond to the recent exodus of plans from the Medicare market and how to address broader concerns about Medicare's overall structure and financing.
