Pharmaceuticals and Medicare Managed Care : Pharmacoeconomic Considerations. Conference. Tucson, AZ, USA, 1998/01/19.
The Medicare program is in precarious financial condition because of underfunding and structural defects in the way it pays providers of medical care.
Given the prevailing anti-tax sentiment, the more promising route for attaining Medicare fiscal solvency would seem to lie on the expenditure side of the equation.
This paper proposes a managed care model for reform that relies on an efficient and already-tested form of competitive bidding for the provision of medical care.
It concludes with a discussion of short-run, intermediate-run, and long-run budgetary and tax implications for the Medicare program.
