Abstract:
Private insurance plans were introduced into the Medicare program in the 1980s based on the theory that private plans could provide coordinated, high-quality care, and enhanced benefits for beneficiaries at a cost below that of the traditional fee-for-service (FFS) program. Under this scenario, beneficiaries would have a choice of plans from which they could obtain extra benefits for an extra premium.
