Medicare - Some Interesting Statistics Regarding Per Capita Spending


I found this HealthAffairs Blog article by Tracy Gnadinger to be interesting. It states that an analysis of Medicare spending from 2000 to 2011 found that in 2011 per capita spending increased with age, then starting declining at age 96.

Additionally this article mentioned the study also found that Medicare beneficiaries ages 80 and older, who comprised 24% of the beneficiaries, accounted for a a disproportionate share (33 %) of traditional Medicare spending in 2011.

Note: Medicare Insurance information can be overwhelming and confusing to many people. As an independent licensed agent I can explain things to you in simple terms so you feel comfortable making a decision. Then I can help you choose and enroll in a plan that you feel fits your needs.

By the way, it doesn’t cost you any more if you enroll in a Medicare Insurance plan through me as an independent agent versus directly with an insurance company either over the phone or via the Internet, since I get paid by the insurance companies for your enrollment. Plus you will have personalized service by a local agent. If you would like my assistance, please call me at 941-404-5334.

By calling this number, I understand I will be directed to a licensed insurance sales agent.
