Abstract

Findings with regard to health status, service use, and charges are presented for Medicare beneficiaries who received care under Medicare risk contracts with two health maintenance organizations from 1980 through 1982 and for fee-for-service comparison groups. Health status of plan enrollees and fee-for-service beneficiaries were compared using mortality data, preenrollment claims, and self-reported health measures. Patterns of use and expenditures during preenrollment and postenrollment periods were examined using Medicare records and data supplied by the plans.
