Abstract
Before the changes instituted by the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, Medicare payments to managed care organizations were based on per capita fee-for-service costs in each county for the aged and disabled populations. Within each county Medicare payments were adjusted by demographic factors including age and sex, as well as welfare and institutional status.
