Medicare

HSC research examines the effects of Medicare payment policy on providers and health plans. In particular, analyses focus on trends in plan participation in Medicare Advantage over time and how plan participation affects local markets. Other analyses examine the extent of physicians' acceptance of new Medicare patients over time and Medicare beneficiaries access to care relative to the privately insured.
