After meeting your yearly Medicare Part B deductible ($147.00), the amount you pay for mental health services depends on whether the purpose of your visit is to diagnose your condition or to get treatment. For visits to diagnose your condition, you would pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount. For outpatient treatment of your condition, like psychotherapy, you would pay 35% of the Medicare-approved amount in 2013. If you have a Medicare Supplement Insurance policy or Medicare Advantage, contact your plan for information on your out of pocket responsibilities.

RI Supreme Court denies expedited appeal in Providence Medicare case

[W]e are constrained to observe that this case involves significant legal issues, the judicious determination of which is of the utmost importance both to the parties and to the public. Therefore, in view of the accelerated nature of the trial court proceedings and the statutory precedence already provided to matters of this nature, we see no need to engage in a precipitate consideration of issues which are best resolved with the aid of a more complete record.

Provider idenification Numbers 

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

NPI Number-National Provider Identifier Number was created in order to simplify all the different ID number for each insurance.  Effective May 23, 2007  all providers had to have an NPI number to bill insurance and also to identify themselves as referring physicians.  A new uniform billing form was created to accommodate these new NPI numbers.(see Uniform Billing Forms).  The doctor or group associated with the NPI will be the address in box 33 a of the CMS form/ or for a facility box   of the UB-04 form.  that is who will receive the insurance payment.

Cash Based Pelvic PT Clinic – Interview of Emily Wegmann MPT, OCS

Hi Ann and Teresa, These are great questions regarding Medicare and the fee schedule, and a topic often discussed in these and other forums. We will do our best to answer them fully! Can non-participating providers accept payment up front? Yes, non-participating providers are technically able to collect payment from patients at the time services are rendered. The claim is submitted to Medicare, and Medicare reimburses the patient directly and passes on the claim a secondary insurer, if applicable, for additional direct patient reimbursement. The patient is responsible for his or her deductible and any allowable charges not paid for by Medicare and other insurance providers. Sounds simple (kind of); HOWEVER, here are the things to be aware of when determining payment: Fee schedules, limiting charges and the like: We are not contracted with any insurance provider and are not bound by contracted fee schedule amounts with private insurers. Non-participating provider for Medicare are able to have a separate and distinct fee schedule for Medicare patients based on the physician fee schedule for non-participating providers (see below on how to determine the fee schedule in your region). The separate Medicare fee schedule cannot exceed the standard fee schedule. Not surprisingly, non-participating and participating Medicare providers have different fee schedules. If you consider this route, make sure you have the CORRECT fee schedule for starters. The non-participating fee is determined by your intermediary (if you live in NC, SC, VA or WV, you can find the fee schedule here on the Palmetto/GBA website; if you live in CA, HI, or NV find it here. See the follow-up answer for additional links if you reside in a different state). Non-participating providers are permitted to charge up to 115% of the designated fee per each code. When you look up the fee schedule for your region, you will find the fee assigned to each CPT code as well as the limiting charge (the highest allowable charge) for each code. Sounds easy, right? Just find the fee, tack on an additional 105-115%, and you are ready to go. Not so fast. MPPR (Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction): The MPPR, simply put, means that the highest billable unit charged is reimbursed at 100% of the allowable amount, and that the values of other codes charged during the same visit will be reduced when more than one code is billed on the same date. Currently, the reduction is 20% for those in private practice but is slated to increase to 50% in April. The APTA website does an excellent job of defining the MPPR and discussing the implications if the proposed 50% reduction goes into effect. Importantly, the patient may NOT be billed for the difference between the fee and the reduction created by the MPPR. This means another calculator and adjustment to the fee before you charge the patient. Secondary Insurance The good news is that Medicare automatically pushes any claims directly to the secondary insurance provider when applicable. The bad news is that there is another calculation to be made if a patient has secondary insurance. There is another calculator that further adjusts the fee amount if the patient has another insurer. At last inquiry, it was stated in these terms: ‘Using this calculator is an estimate, not a guarantee that the fee amount will be what we determine when the claim is processed.’ Bottom line: We are able to collect payment from Medicare patients up front as non-participating providers, but must consider at least three different calculators to determine the exact amount to bill the patient at time of service. Even with all three calculators it is difficult to determine the exact cost the patient would owe up front. For this reason, we have decided to forgo collecting cash at time of service and are now billing Medicare with traditional billing methods (still as non-participating providers). Once the claims are processed, we are informed of the remaining patient responsibility and bill them accordingly. We discuss this openly with patients when they call, let them know that there will be a component of payment that they will be responsible for and answer any questions. It is not ideal however it allows us to continue to work with these patients and make sure that we are charging the patient appropriately. Sound complicated? Well, we think it is. We are continuing to evaluate the best possible ways to accept all patients in a cash based model. In an ideal world, physical therapists would be able to opt out of Medicare just as physicians do. Ann, we are including a link to your blog (http://www.webpt.com/blog/post/medicare-issues-facing-cash-based-pts) for those who want to learn more about to take action to allow physical therapists to opt out and provide services to Medicare patients in a cased based model. Best, Emily & Sarah

When, If Ever, Do You Get a New NPI Number and Other NPI Questions

An individual is eligible for only one NPI. In the above example, there are two health care providers: the physician and the corporation. The physician would obtain an NPI (Entity Type Code 1, Individual). The corporation would obtain an NPI (Entity Type Code 2, Organization). Generally, the corporations NPI would represent the Billing and Pay-to Providers and the physicians NPI would represent the Rendering, Referring/Ordering, Attending, Operating and/or Other Providers. These physicians should ensure that their enrollment records with the health plans to whom they will be sending claims are up to date, that those health plans are aware of the assigned NPIs, and that the NPIs are used in a way that is compatible with their enrollment.

—For reporting taking place during the first year, 2012, claims having a TPOC of $5,000 or less do not need to be reported. In the second year, 2013, the threshold drops to $2,000. In 2014, the threshold drops again to $600. Finally, in 2015, all TPOCs, regardless of size, must be reported. After less than enthusiastic feedback from the industry of the eroding threshold limits in subsequent years in liability claims, CMS was quick to point out that that they may consider changing these thresholds or leaving them in place longer than originally outlined in the March 20, 2009 Alert memo and in MMSEA Section 111 Medicare Secondary Payer Mandatory Reporting: Liability Insurance (Including Self-Insurance), No-Fault Insurance, and Workers’ Compensation User Guide, Version 3.2 (August 17, 2011), at 71–72.

The SMART Act requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services (“Secretary”) to establish a process by which a claimant (or his or her authorized representative) can dispute discrepancies with the statement of reimbursement amount. A claimant or authorized representative must submit documentation of the potential discrepancy and a proposed resolution to the Secretary. The Act states that the Secretary must determine whether there is a reasonable basis for including or removing a claim and provide a response within eleven (11) business days. Lack of a response is a deemed acceptance of the claimant’s proposal. If the Secretary determines that there is not a reasonable basis to include or remove claims, the proposal will be rejected. If the Secretary concludes that there is a discrepancy, but rejects the proposed resolution, documentation showing good cause for why the Secretary has rejected the proposal and establishing an alternate discrepancy resolution must be provided to the claimant. This process does not create an appeals process, however, and the SMART Act expressly forecloses the possibility of administrative or judicial review of the Secretary’s determinations. Final regulations must be promulgated by October 10, 2013, nine (9) months after the date of enactment, the effective date of this provision.

Section 111 of the MMSEA & Medicare Liens: A Harbinger of Settlement Delays?

, 2009 WL 1117399 (M.D.Fla.) where the defendant put Medicare’s name on the settlement check even though the settlement agreement made no mention of Medicare.  The defendant insisted that federal law (namely 42 CFR 411.24) forced it to put Medicare’s name on the check.  The plaintiff assured the defendant that Medicare would be reimbursed out of the settlement proceeds and went so far as to agree to indemnify the defendant for any Medicare claims.  The defendant refused to remove Medicare as a payee on the check.  Predictably, the attorneys went back to the judge.

Group health plans must report to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Social Security Numbers or Medicare Insurance Claim Numbers for employees and their covered family members who might have Medicare coverage in addition to coverage under the employer group health plan.  Many employers with fully-insured health plans have been contacted by their insurers to collect SSNs and HICNs for their participating employees.  Self-funded plans may have their own reporting requirements.  The reporting, required under Section 111 of the Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP Extension Act of 2007, helps CMS identify Medicare-covered individuals with group health plan coverage that should pay claims primary to Medicare.

JAMA Forum: Eliminating Wasteful, Unnecessary Care Is the Best Way to Preserve Medicare

For example, Congress could lower Medicare’s costs by adding new restrictions on eligibility. Republican Congressman Paul Ryan, chair of the House Budget Committee, has repeatedly proposed increasing the age at which someone becomes eligible for Medicare as a part of his policy solution for the federal deficit. However, there is staunch opposition among Democratic members of Congress, who are concerned that this would leave older workers and retirees vulnerable to the high costs of health care coverage, and therefore at risk for the negative consequences of delayed care, for a longer period of time before they would be eligible for Medicare. Although this approach might reduce Medicare cost growth, the savings would be largely offset by increases in federal payments for premium tax credits for marketplace coverage, a reduction in Medicare premiums contributed by beneficiaries, and increased payments for those who would become eligible for Medicaid.

The Benefits of Changing Medicare’s Drug Benefit

While Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry has criticized various pieces of health legislation, critics and observers argue that Perry’s own proposals have been largely ineffective. On the campaign trail, Perry repeatedly has criticized the 2006 Massachusetts health reform law — signed by fellow candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) — and the federal health reform law, objecting to insurance mandates in both laws. Meanwhile, Texas faces numerous challenges covering its residents, including the highest rate of uninsured individuals in the country and the third-lowest percentage of workers with employer-sponsored health coverage nationwide (Ramshaw, Texas Tribune/New York Times, 9/29).

The cost of raising Medicare’s eligibility age

Raising the Medicare eligibility age to 67 from 65 would cost states and private payers about twice as much as it would save the federal government, according to this graph from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ Paul Van de Water. The change would net the federal government $5.7 billion in savings if enacted in 2014. But it would also increase health care costs for many other health care payers, to the tune of $11.4 billion.

Newsroom – Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan broadens Medicare options with new Medicare Advantage PPO product

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

October 1 is the first day BCBSM and Medicare Advantage carriers across the nation can market their Medicare Advantage products for 2010. Beneficiaries in BCBSM Medicare Advantage products will receive letters in the next 10 days about the new product line-up. "Blue Cross remains fully committed to providing products to Medicare beneficiaries and will continue to have the broadest array of Medicare Advantage products in the state," said Mark Owen, BCBSM vice president for federal and individual business. "It’s important for Medicare beneficiaries to know that there is no immediate change to their coverage. They have until the end of the year to make their selection for 2010." In addition to the three BCBSM products for 2010, seniors also can select from three Medicare Advantage products offered by Blue Care Network, the BCBSM-affiliated HMO. "We will be working with insurance agents and other groups across the state to reach out to Medicare beneficiaries to help them navigate these product and premium changes," said Owen. Seniors who meet low income guidelines can receive subsidies from the state and/or federal government to pay for all or part of their premiums. Medicare Advantage premiums vary by product and region. The new PPO product is expected to provide beneficiaries with value for their premium. For example, the BCBSM Medicare Plus Blue PPO, which includes Part D prescription drug coverage, will cost between $61 and $141 a month (premiums vary by geographic region), while traditional BCBSM Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) Plan C plans cost $183 when combined with a stand-alone Part D BCBSM prescription drug program. Medicare Advantage plans offer Medicare benefits through private health insurance plans and most include Part D prescription drug coverage. When you purchase a Medicare Advantage plan, you do not need to also purchase a Medigap policy. Medicare Advantage plans are regulated solely by the federal government, while Medigap plans are regulated by the state. The announced product changes are only for Medicare beneficiaries who directly purchase their Medicare Advantage products, not for beneficiaries enrolled in a group plan. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network are nonprofit corporations and independent licensees of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

Provider Directory Blue Medicare PPO Provider Directory The Blue Medicare PPO plan is a preferred provider organization (PPO) plan. All Blue Medicare PPO contracted network providers are available to the members through self-referral, with the exception of services that require preauthorization. We work with our contracted health care practitioners to help ensure that care is accessible, coordinated, timely, and provided in a manner and setting that promotes positive patient-physician relationships. The Texas Provider Directory (PDF, 1298KB) provides a list of the Blue Medicare PPO network providers. The Provider Directory also provides a list of Blue Medicare PPO’s network pharmacies. We call the pharmacies on this list “our network of pharmacies” because we have made arrangements with them to provide prescription drugs to Plan members. A network pharmacy is a pharmacy where beneficiaries obtain prescription drug benefits provided by Blue Medicare PPO. In most cases, your prescription drugs are covered under Blue Medicare PPO only if they are filled at a network pharmacy or through our mail order pharmacy service. You are not required to go to the same pharmacy to fill your prescriptions, you can go to any of our network pharmacies. We will fill prescriptions at non-network pharmacies under some special circumstances. For additional details, you can check the Evidence of Coverage (PDF, 371KB) Our Service Area: The Blue Medicare PPO provider network is comprised of contracted hospitals, provider groups, and independent physicians. You should check the on-line Provider directory for the current list of network providers. Can I choose my doctors? Blue Medicare PPO has formed a network of doctors, specialists and hospitals. You can use any doctor who is part of our network. You may also go to doctors outside of our network. The health providers in our network can change at any time. However the listing found on this site is updated monthly. What happens if I go to a doctor who isn’t in the network? You can go to doctors, specialists or hospitals in-network or out-of-network. You may have to pay more for the services you receive outside the network, and you may have to follow special rules prior to getting services in- and/or out-of-network. Referrals and Care from an Out-of-Network Provider Your out-of-pocket costs will be higher if you use out-of-network providers than if you use network providers. When network providers are not available in your service area due to network inadequacy or continuity of care and you have to use out-of-network providers for your medical services, Blue Medicare PPO will waive the out-of-network deductible and pay for the services at the in-network benefits levels. Although referrals are not required by our plan, you may wish to get a prior authorization to receive a lower cost to you. When you have an appointment with an out-of-plan or out-of-network physician/professional provider which is necessary due to network inadequacy or continuity of care, to receive the lower out-of-pocket cost, the services must be reviewed and authorized by Utilization Management prior to you receiving care. You need to obtain prior-authorization for the request for an out-of-network provider to be paid as in-network by calling 1-800-441-9188 for the Utilization Management area.

Medicare supplement leads may be generated by direct mail campaigns

One major con in using direct mail campaigns is that chances are your competition may also be using them, and by the time all is said and done, the nation’s seniors have a mailbox full of flyers about Medicare supplements. From your point-of-view, it’s good information. From their point-of-view, it’s just another flyer trying to sell them something. Often, when working Medicare supplement leads it is best to be able to touch base with the actual party that requested the information. That means sourcing your leads from a respected lead generation company is your best bet to earn the kind of income you want.

Free Direct MP3s Download: Social Security Q&A: On Medicare

Q: How many parts to Medicare are there? A: There are four parts to Medicare: Part A (hospital insurance) helps pay for inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing care, hospice care and other services; Part B (medical insurance) helps pay for doctors’ fees, outpatient hospital visits, and other medical services and supplies that are not covered by Part A; Part C (Medicare Advantage) plans, available in some areas, allow you to choose to receive all of your health care services through a provider organization. These plans may help lower your costs of receiving medical services, or you may get extra benefits for an additional monthly fee. You must have both Parts A and B to enroll in Part C; and Part D (prescription drug coverage) is voluntary and the costs are paid for by the monthly premiums of enrollees and Medicare. Unlike Part B in which you are automatically enrolled and must opt out if you do not want it, with Part D you have to opt in by filling out a form and enrolling in an approved plan. More information may be found in our publication Medicare at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10043.html or by visiting www.medicare.gov. Q: I found out that my daughter and I submitted incorrect information about my resources when she helped me complete my Application for Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs.

The Value of Outsourcing Cardiology Specialty Billing Amidst Changes to Medicare Reimbursement Rates

Any revision in Medicare reimbursement rates will have a direct impact on physicians’ medical billing, and cardiologists are not immune to the effects of frequent changes in Medicare reimbursement rates, announced by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) from time to time. While cardiologists or their billers could anticipate the extent of earlier revisions with a fair degree of accuracy, they might not have imagined what they would be encountering in 2013 – as per CMS would have to be prepared for a 2 percent cut over and above the possible 26.5 percent cut to fix Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. In addition to these general revisions, sweeping changes in rules governing evaluation of coders for certain high percentage cardio-vascular procedures, multiple procedure payment reduction, PQRS and e-prescribing, and value-based modifiers may potentially squeeze cardiologists’ revenues or operational margins.

CMS Promotes Value for Seniors and Persons with Disabilities in Medicare Plans

With today’s regulation limiting overhead and profits for Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans, the Affordable Care Act continues to promote value for consumers’ and taxpayers’ health care spending. These new requirements apply to Medicare health and drug plans offered by private insurance companies serving over 37 million seniors and persons with disabilities, and build on a similar regulation we issued last year requiring a minimum medical loss ratio for health plans serving consumers in the private insurance market. Medicare health and drug plans, beginning next year, must meet a minimum medical loss ratio, limiting their spending on non-health related items such as administrative costs, profit, or overhead. More specifically, this means that the plans must spend at least 85 percent of their revenue on direct benefits to Medicare enrollees such as clinical services, prescription drugs and quality improving activities.

Medicare Savings in Perspective: A Comparison of 2009 Health Reform Legislation and Other Laws in the Last 15 Years

This policy brief considers the proposed 10-year Medicare savings and increased spending in the two proposals in the context of other laws enacted during the last 15 years that have resulted in significant changes to the Medicare program. The analysis calculates net changes in 10-year projected Medicare expenditures estimated at the time each law was enacted as a share of the contemporaneous projected Medicare baseline spending. The results help to illustrate the relative magnitude of each law’s effect on Medicare expenditures as projected at the time of enactment.

N.C.’s nascent Medicaid reform

Differences in availability of Medicare Advantage plans by county are driven by the choices of private insurers. Private companies cannot be forced to offer a Medicare Advantage plan in a given county, and many offer different plans in different counties. To provide a sense of the variation, peruse this website that provides a great deal of information on Medicare Advantage plans in N.C. Selecting the subset of plans offering a $0 prescription drug deductible and seeking the lowest premium plans in 2013 yields the following list of plans (if you click the county name you will see all MA plans). This scanned map (NCMedAdvtantage.6.5.13_best) with my handwritten comparisons of what is available in selected counties is illustrative. In Durham county, there are two Medicare Advantage plans with a $0 prescription drug deductible that have no additional premium to be paid by a Medicare beneficiary choosing this plan, and another with an additional patient monthly premium of $6. In Lenoir county, there are two plans, but the lowest monthly premium to be paid by a beneficiary for such a plan is $75 per month. I have not done a comprehensive comparison of all Medicare Advantage plans; my point is that the Medicare Advantage market is county-based, driven by insurance companies deciding where they want to offer certain types of plans.

MedicareBob’s Blog: AARP Medicare Supplement Plans

My favorite thing about AARP Medicare Supplement Plans is that AARP does not require a member to “re-apply” to switch Plans. For example, if you have a Plan N and you want to upgrade to a Plan F, AARP is one of the only Companies that will let you do this without medically qualify.

Benefits of small area measurements: A spatial clustering analysis on medicare beneficiaries in the USA | Human Geographies

Small area estimates on where services for potential Medicare beneficiaries may be needed, could provide unique research opportunities for improving the healthcare quality of the ageing U.S. population. The project described in this paper validates this argument by contrasting the spatial clustering results from an analysis that uses large geographical units with proxy measures to the results from an analysis using small area geographic units with direct measures. Large-area proxy measures come from county-level U.S. Census Bureau 2010 cross sectional data on the number of people aged 65 and over. Medicare beneficiary estimates in 2007 with Primary Care Service Areas (PCSAs) make up the small-area direct-measure analysis. Findings show that the latter offers a more geographically defined appraisal of where healthcare quality efforts should focus to aid potential Medicare beneficiary populations. Because the healthcare quality of an aging population will only increase in importance as their numbers grow in the US, further research is needed.

Doctors Fleeing Medicare, Moving to Direct Primary Care

Neil Sapin, a Glendale, Arizona, physician, charges less, about $1,500, but has a larger practice. He used to run himself ragged trying to keep up with the flow of patients necessary to cover all the expenses of his practice: “I used to see 18 patients per day, but [over time] I’m up to 24 or 25. It [became] difficult to give people as much time as I’d like to.” So he went private, dropping his workload from 1,600 patients to just 500. His patients have access to him any time of day or night and they can access their medical records from a home computer at any time and send him questions about their health via e-mail. Sapin says this allows him to spend more time with those who need him, and he also has time “to stress preventive health and dietary counseling.”

The Associated Press: A Respite For Medicare; Social Security No Worse Medicare’s long-term health is starting to look a little better, the government said Friday, but both Social Security and Medicare are still wobbling toward insolvency within two decades if Congress and the president don’t find a way to shore up the trust funds established to take care of older Americans. Medicare’s giant fund for inpatient care will be exhausted in 2026, two years later than estimated last year, while Social Security’s projected insolvency in 2033 remains unchanged, the government reported (Alonso-Zaldivar, 5/31).

Spillover Benefits From Medicare Advantage

[I]ncreasing MA monthly payments by $100 (about one standard deviation) would increase the share of beneficiaries in MA by just under 5 percentage points…This would increase total MA spending by $100 per month for the existing and new enrollees, or almost $5 billion in total for these states. Overall costs of hospital care is estimated to go down by something like 2% when MA penetration increases by 5 percentage points, off a base of total hospital costs for the [traditional Medicare] population remaining in these states (after the implied shift to MA) of just under $30 billion, or about $600 million. Hospital costs for those in [traditional Medicare] would thus go down by upwards of 10% of the increase in spending on MA.

Study: Immigrants Pay More Into Medicare Than They Receive in Benefits

The authors also noted that many immigrants pay taxes that help fund the program but are not eligible for its benefits. For example, many undocumented immigrants use fake Social Security numbers to work, which means they and their employers pay Social Security and Medicare taxes. However, such residents are ineligible for either program. The Affordable Care Act also prohibits undocumented immigrants from obtaining other health benefits, such as the insurance subsidies intended to help U.S. residents purchase coverage through the health insurance exchanges that launch next year (“Politics Now,” Los Angeles Times, 5/29).

Medicare’s Health and Well

On the other hand, immigrants currently make substantial financial contributions to the system, even though a large segment may not be able to use any public benefits in return. A new study conducted by researchers at Harvard Medical School and the City University of New York shows that immigrants are already disproportionately subsidizing Medicare, the national social insurance program that guarantees access to health insurance to people aged 65 and older, as well as younger people with disabilities. Between 2002 and 2009 immigrants generated surpluses of between $11.1 and $17.2 billion per year, which amounted to $115.2 billion in the entire period. Most of the surplus from immigrants, moreover, came from noncitizens who are largely working-age taxpayers.  Conversely, in 2009 alone, U.S.-born people accounted for a $30.9 billion deficit.  As the study asserts, “immigrants generate a surplus for Medicare primarily because so many of them are working-age adults and the group has a higher labor force participation rate, a combination that generates large payroll tax payments.”

Do I Need Medicare If I Have Other Health Insurance?

Most people don’t pay a premium for Medicare Part A, which helps cover hospital stays. There’s usually no reason not to sign up for this coverage as soon as you’re eligible. With Part B, which covers doctor visits and other outpatient care, you’ll pay a monthly premium. If you like your current plan, it may make sense to keep it and wait to sign up for Part B when you retire.

Restructuring Medicare’s Benefit Design: Implications for Beneficiaries and Spending

The study also examines the expected impact of two variations of this proposal. The first looks at a higher or lower out-of-pocket spending limit, and illustrates how raising the limit would increase beneficiary costs while reducing Medicare spending, while a lower limit would do just the opposite. The second variation examines the effect of combining the alternative benefit design with restrictions on Medigap coverage, another frequently mentioned approach to achieving Medicare savings.

The cost is also expressed as a ratio to the median amount Medicare spent per patient nationally (“Efficiency Index”). A result of 1 means Medicare spends about the same per patient at that hospital as it does per patient nationally. A result higher than 1 means that Medicare spends more per patient than the median. A result below 1 means that Medicare spends less per patient than the median. To allow for fair comparisons, Medicare adjusted its figures to take into account the health and diagnosis of patients and other factors.

Daily Kos: How the GOP gets it all wrong on Medicare in five charts

What these three charts tell you is simple: It’s all about health care. Spending on Social Security is expected to rise, but not particularly quickly. Spending on everything else is actually falling. It’s health care that contains most all of our future deficit problems. And the situation is even worse than it looks on this graph: Private health spending is racing upwards even faster than public health spending, so the problem the federal government is showing in its budget projections is mirrored on the budgets of every family and business that purchases health insurance. Klein’s warning that “private health spending is racing upwards even faster than public health spending” is especially true for Medicare. While there is heated debate about the size of the gap, there is little doubt that the administrative overhead of government-run Medicare is significantly lower than that of private insurers. That is also true of the private Medicare Advantage programs currently used by about 20 percent of beneficiaries. As it turns out, Medicare Advantage policies on average not only feature higher administrative costs, but cost the government much more in monthly premiums than the traditional “public option” Medicare. As Klein explained two years ago: The Medicare Advantage program, which invited private insurers to offer managed-care options to Medicare beneficiaries, was expected to save money, but it ended up costing about 120 percent of what Medicare costs. In 2011, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman turned to data from the Centers on Medicare and Medicaid Services to illustrate the comparative cost-savings to the United States Treasury.

Competitive Bidding Legislation The Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) required that CMS institute a Competitive Bidding Program for DMEPOS. According to the CMS, “Under the program, DMEPOS suppliers compete to become Medicare and Medicaid contract suppliers by submitting bids to furnish certain items in competitive bidding areas, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awards contracts to enough suppliers to meet beneficiary demand for the bid items.” The intent of competitive bidding, in part, is to address cost issues with DMEPOS and providing additional supplier oversight to ensure that beneficiaries (patients) receive quality items at reasonable prices. (Before the competitive bidding program was in place, certain DMEPOS items were reimbursed to suppliers through a fee schedule.)

I also like to point out that I think that the whole issue is ripe for a class-action suit, making decisions about treatment without medical contact, cutting medical records, etc. The “damages” aren’t huge on a case-by-case basis but I suspect they could be quantified. It also would help a case that we don’t really care about $$$$ as much as getting coverage, in which case the only people making money on it would be the attorneys, which would likely enhance their interest in the case. I suspect that the Medicare guidelines and the weak and conservative AMA guidelines for supply needs stem from budgetary shortfalls but I am certain that were the issue to be explored, there’s a significant probability that actionable graft and corruption that would be a hook for the case.
