Abstract
There is general consensus that the present Medicare physician payment system and related policies should be revised. Therefore, the Health Care Financing Administration and Congress are examining the physician reimbursement system for potential changes that could reverse the inflationary incentives in the present system and induce greater incentives for efficiency and cost savings. Medicare program data and information are provided to assist health care managers and administrators in the development and analysis of Medicare physician research and policy initiatives. The data may also be helpful in monitoring and measuring the use and cost of Medicare physician and supplier services as related to program performance and administration.
