Analyzing Critical Issues for Medicare's Future


There is a growing push by policymakers to make Medicare a more efficient, sustainable program. Guided by Marilyn Moon, this project will inform the search for new ways to improve Medicare's cost-effectiveness, including enhanced use of primary care case management. Moon and her staff will also assess how beneficiaries are faring under recent changes to Medicare, and how they would fare under proposed changes to benefits. Four separate studies will: 1) analyze patterns of physician services in fee-for-service Medicare to assess the potential of primary care case management to serve beneficiaries better; 2) model the impact of proposals for cutting benefits, including projections of the relative burdens on beneficiaries and taxpayers; 3) assess service use and out-of-pocket spending by beneficiaries with chronic health conditions; and 4) examine the effects of a possible high-deductible coverage option.
