Geographic Adjustment in Medicare Payment - Phase II:
Implications for Access, Quality, and Efficiency

This report – the final of three -- evaluates the possible effects of the factors that are used to adjust Medicare payments to health care providers to account for geographic variations in the costs of providing care. It also recommends ways to ensure that the adjustments accurately reflect price differences and reward high-quality care.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was released on July 17, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
