GAO provided information on its Health Financing and Systems issue area plan for fiscal years 1999-2001.

GAO plans to examine: (1) how effectively the Health Care Financing Administration is managing Medicare's fee-for-service and managed care components--particularly the implementation of recent legislative reforms; (2) how payment and pricing reforms will be implemented and what effect they might have on Medicare spending and beneficiary access to quality care; (3) what financing mechanisms and safeguards are in place to protect both federal dollars and program beneficiaries; (4) how longstanding and recently enacted legislation affect the provision of coverage through the private insurance market; and (5) how the evolution of financing and delivery systems in the private market affects the options made available to public program beneficiaries.
