Medicare: Continuous Insurance before Enrollment Associated with Better Health and Lower Program Spending
James Cosgrove (au)
Nearly 7 million individuals aged 55 to 64, the pre-Medicare population, lacked health insurance coverage in the first half of 2012, accounting for more than 18% of this population. The health insurance coverage of pre-Medicare individuals may have implications for the Medicare program. Health insurance protects individuals against the risk of financial hardship when they need medical care, and uninsured pre-Medicare individuals may refrain from seeking necessary care because of the cost. As a result, these individuals may be in worse health and may require more costly medical services after Medicare enrollment compared with those who were insured. They also may, out of habit, continue to seek care differently. This report compares (1) the health status of Medicare beneficiaries with and without continuous health insurance coverage before enrollment and (2) the spending and use of services by Medicare beneficiaries with and without continuous health insurance coverage before enrollment. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
