US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “Medical Care Expenditure Indexes for the US, 1980-2006,” by Ana Aizcorbe and Tina Highfill (WP2015-4, May 2015, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

We construct historical medical care expenditure indexes (MCEs) for the US economy for the period 1980-2006, thus supplementing the MCEs provided in the BEA health account for the period 2001-2010 (Dunn et al, 2015). Comparing our MCEs to the official deflators used in the national accounts, our results depend on the specific time period. We find that the MCEs show slower price growth than the official BEA deflator from 1987-1996, consistent with the fact indexes that improve on the official statistics typically find slower price growth than the official indexes. However, for the 1996-2006 time period, the result is reversed: our MCE price indexes grow faster than the official price deflator over this period.

To better understand this result, we develop a decomposition that parses out the numerical differences in these indexes into three factors that are held constant in the official price indexes but are not in the MCEs: changes in the industry providing care, changes in the type of insurance plan used by the patients, and changes in the bundle of procedures used to treat patients. We argue that our results reflect the impact on the cost of treatment from the well-known shift from relatively generous fee-for-service plans to more restrictive managed care plans between the late 1980s and early 1990s and the subsequent backlash. As the less-generous managed care plans grew in the earlier period, physicians received less payment for their services and used fewer procedures to treat episodes of care which would hold down the growth of the MCE but not that of the official deflators. The opposite appears to have happened in the latter period: there, the managed care backlash took hold, undoing much of the cost constraint phenomenon that was associated with the earlier rise of managed care.

With regard to other factors that potentially drive a wedge between growth in the MCE vs official deflators, we find that industry shifts provided a check on cost growth across all three periods: absent these shifts, the MCE would have risen 6 to 13 percent faster. With regard to shifts in insurance plans or in the utilization of procedures, our results are consistent with the notion that shifts in insurance plans, per se, did not affect price growth much over this period but changes in utilization did.
