GAO provided information on its Health Financing and Systems issue area plan for fiscal years 1997 to 1999.

GAO plans to: (1) review the Health Care Financing Administration's efforts to collect payments from other insurers in the Medicare Secondary Payer program; (2) review states' ability to monitor managed care plans' financial solvency and administrative costs; (3) review managed care programs for special needs populations; (4) examine the private sector's use of bundled payments for certain types of care and the potential for applying this technique more widely in Medicare; (5) review the major changes in the Medicaid program that accompanied the shift to managed care delivery models; (6) analyze the implications of raising the age threshold for Medicare eligibility on Medicare outlays, private employers, and individuals; and (7) assess state equity differences in allocating Medicaid funds through block grants and other federal contribution arrangements.
