Free for all? : lessons from the Rand Health Insurance Experiment by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the most important health insurance study ever conducted researchers at the RAND Corporation devised all experiment to address two key questions in health care financing: how much more medical care will people use if it is provided free of charge, and what are the consequences for their health? For three- or five-year periods the experiment measured both use and health outcomes in populations carefully selected to be representative of both urban and rural regions throughout the United States. Participants were enrolled in a range of insurance plans requiring different levels of copayment for medical care, from zero to 95 percent. The researchers found that in plans that reimbursed a higher proportion of the bill, patients used substantially more services - indeed, those who paid nothing used 40 percent more services than those required to pay a high deductible - but the effect on the health of the average person was negligible. In addition, participants who were assigned at random to a well-established health maintenance organization used hospitals substantially less than those in the fee-for-service system, again with no measurable effect on the health of the average person. This book collects in one place for the first time results previously dispersed through many journals over many years. Drawing comprehensive, coherent conclusions from an immense amount of data, it is destined to be a classic work serving as an invaluable reference for all those concerned with health care policy - health service researchers, policymakers in both the public and the private sectors, and students

Pricing the priceless : a health care conundrum by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

15 editions published between 1459 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Pricing the Priceless, Joseph Newhouse explains the different pricing systems and how they affect resource allocation and efficiency. All pricing arrangements, he explains, involve trade-offs. The advantages of more inclusive bases of payment, for example, may be offset by incentives for providers to select good risks or to stint on the delivery of services."--Jacket

Reimbursement under uncertainty : what to do if one cannot identify an efficient hospital by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report comments on methods for identifying an efficient hospital. A direct approach to this task is to estimate frontier cost or production functions; i.e., determine hospitals that, for a given output, seem to be minimizing cost. The difficulty comes in the measurement. The existing literature usually assumes that the output of hospitals is simply patient days or stays or both, neglecting both case mix variation and the quality of the services delivered. The author concludes that the prospects for identifying efficient hospitals through direct estimation of cost and production functions are not good and that reimbursement should be partly a function of the firm's observed cost and not purely prospective
Coinsurance and the demand for medical services : a report prepared under grants from the Office of Economic Opportunity and the National Center for Health Services Research and Development by Charles E Phelps( Book )

On having your cake and eating it too : econometric problems in estimating the demand for health services by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

14 editions published between 1974 and 1979 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses certain methodological problems in the economics literature related to the demand for medical care. There are two principal problems examined: misspecification of how insurance affects demand, and aggregation across services or across individuals. It is shown that in both cases estimates contained in the literature are inconsistent. Where possible, the direction of the inconsistency is obtained a priori. The paper also makes estimates of the magnitude of the inconsistency; the demand elasticities estimated in the economics literature may be overstated by a factor of three or more

Some interim results from a controlled trial of cost sharing in health insurance by Rand Corporation( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

7,706 persons are participating in a controlled trial of alternative health insurance policies. Interim results indicate that persons fully covered for medical services spend around 50 percent more than similar persons insured with an income-related catastrophic plan. Full coverage leads to more people using services and increased hospital admissions. Once patients are admitted to the hospital, however, expenditure per person does not differ significantly among the experimental insurance plans. Hospital admissions for children also do not vary by insurance plan. The income-related cost sharing in the experimental plans affects expenditure by different income groups similarly, but adults' total expenditure varies more than children's. Sufficient data are not yet available on whether higher utilization by those with free care reflects overutilization, or whether lower utilization by those with income-related catastrophic coverage reflects underutilization. Both may well be true
The status of health in demand estimation : beyond excellent, good, fair, and poor by Willard G Manning( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study addresses two issues. (1) What can one gain by using more comprehensive measures of health status in demand estimation than a common single item measure? Would you rate your health as excellent, good, fair, or poor? The authors find that by using multidimensional and less-coarse health status measures they achieve an increase in precision approximately equivalent to a 10 percent increase in sample size. (2) What is the consequence of employing postdiction (i.e., predicting utilization from health status measured after the fact) rather than prediction? Using a simple, but plausible, model, the authors show that such measures cause the estimates to be inconsistent; the direction of the inconsistency generally cannot be signed a priori. Empirically the direction is generally away from zero

Variation in health care spending : target decision making, not geography by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Variation in Health Care Spending investigates geographic variation in health care spending and quality for Medicare beneficiaries as well as other populations, and analyzes Medicare payment policies that could encourage high-value care. This report concludes that regional differences in Medicare and commercial health care spending and use are real and persist over time. Furthermore, there is much variation within geographic areas, no matter how broadly or narrowly these areas are defined. The report recommends against adoption of a geographically based value index for Medicare payments, because the majority of health care decisions are made at the provider or health care organization level, not by geographic units. Rather, to promote high value services from all providers, Medicare and Medicaid Services should continue to test payment reforms that offer incentives to providers to share clinical data, coordinate patient care, and assume some financial risk for the care of their patients."--Publisher's description

Interim report of the Committee on Geographic Variation in Health Care Spending and Promotion of High-Value Care : preliminary committee observations by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interim Report of the Committee on Geographic Variation in Health Care Spending and Promotion of High-Value Health Care: Preliminary Committee Observations is designed to provide the committee's preliminary observations for the 113th Congress as it considers further Medicare reform. This report contains only key preliminary observations related primarily to the committee's commissioned analyses of Medicare Parts A (Hospital Insurance program), B (Supplementary Medical Insurance program) and D (outpatient prescription drug benefit), complemented by other empirical investigations. It does not contain any observations related to the committee's commissioned analyses of the commercial insurer population, Medicare Advantage, or Medicaid, which will be presented in the committee's final report after completion of quality-control activities. This interim report excludes conclusions or recommendations related to the committee's consideration of the geographic value index or other payment reforms designed to promote high value care. Additional analyses are forthcoming, which will influence the committee's deliberations. These analyses include an exploration of how Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) and commercial spending, utilization, and quality vary compared with, and possibly are influenced by, Medicare Parts A and B spending, utilization, and quality. The committee also is assessing potential biases that may be inherent to Medicare and commercial claims-based measures of health status. Based on this new evidence and continued review of the literature, the committee will confirm the accuracy of the observations presented in this interim report and develop final conclusions and recommendations, which will be published in the committee's final report"--Publisher's description
