Retiree health benefits revisited

Academic Article

Abstract

  • A review of the current literature on retiree health benefits finds that supplemental coverage for the majority of Medicare beneficiaries is in the form of employer-provided coverage. Findings in current literature also suggest that Medicare risk contracts can contain costs but efforts must be made to provide quality information to Medicare beneficiaries in order to increase enrollment in HMOs. Finally, a linear relationship is implied between income and the probability of supplementary insurance ownership.
