GAO presented its Health Financing and Public Health issue area plan for fiscal years 1996 through 1998.

GAO plans to assess: (1) how the management and financial integrity of the Medicare and Medicaid programs can be improved; (2) new approaches to current payment methods that could curb Medicare spending growth; (3) how financing arrangements affect Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries' access to quality care; (4) efforts that offer lessons for the Medicare and Medicaid programs and for the ongoing congressional deliberations on insurance reform; (5) the efficiency and effectiveness of the Food and Drug Administration's regulation of medical products; (6) whether Public Health Service agencies are efficiently and effectively meeting the nation's public health needs; and (7) opportunities for improving the nation's health care and ensuring accountability for performance.
