Question and answer
Describe how health care has changed since the start of Medicare and Medicaid. Discussion questions should be answered with at least 200 words
By providing an assured source of funding for new technology, Medicare has contributed to the development and dissemination of many of the new diagnostic and treatment options that have become available over the last 30 years. [ Research and development of procedures, devices, and equipment can be costly and is dependent at least in part on the expectation that payment for their use will be available. Medicare covers the populations most likely to need health services, and the program traditionally has paid for developments once their safety and effectiveness have been demonstrated. Under
managed care, Medicaid recipients are enrolled in a private health plan, which receives a fixed monthly premium from the state. The health plan is then responsible for providing for all or most of the recipient's healthcare needs. Today, all but a few states use managed care to provide coverage to a significant proportion of Medicaid enrollees. Nationwide, roughly 60% of enrollees are enrolled in managed care plans.[2] Core eligibility groups of poor children and parents are most likely to be enrolled in managed care, while the aged and disabled eligibility groups more often remain in traditional "fee for service" Medicaid. ]
