Description
 
Jonathan Ratner (au). Medicare costs have grown rapidly during the 1990s, & are estimated to increase an average of 8.4% a year through FY 2002. To slow this growth rate, proposals have been made to encourage beneficiaries to join managed care plans. This report examines the inconsistency between the expectation that HMOs would save Medicare money & research findings that HMOs increase the programís costs. It identifies conditions under which Medicareís method can yield payment rates that are too high & suggests improvement directed at problems fostering excess payments. Charts & tables.
