Informing the National Policy Debate on Medicare’s Future and Provider Payment Reform

×
With the U.S. Congress and the president likely to turn to addressing the federal budget deficit in 2013, this project will conduct a series of analyses to inform the following: 1) the search for a low-cost method of amending the formula for determining Medicare’s physician payment updates; 2) actions by the Department of Health and Human Services to spread innovations in health care payment and delivery being tested in the Medicare program; and 3) implementation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board, with recommendations for holding growth in Medicare spending below per capita economic growth, plus a small margin. Project staff will update previous analyses of a proposed comprehensive Medicare benefit and the performance of Medicare relative to employer-based private health insurance; consider new ways to streamline and rationalize private-sector provider payment negotiation; and produce recommendations for translating successful innovation pilots into Medicare policy.
