The July 2017 edition tabulates Medicare’s per capita costs in each state and U.S. territory, showing the level of cost variation that exists between jurisdictions. These figures are from 2015 and represent costs in the fee-for-service setting for Part A and Part B services. The August edition tabulates information from the Medicaid MCO financial statements we collect and compile, showing the overall profitability among plans whose revenue is primarily (and often entirely) obtained through serving Medicaid populations. The September edition provides suggestions for making Medicaid managed care optimally effective.
