The Money Behind Medicare Spending

By 2021, Medicare spending is projected to reach $736 billion.

Where does that funding come from? How many people does it benefit? Medicare costs for required services are high enough, but adding in the expense of potentially avoidable services and hospital readmissions causes the spending to spiral out of control.

To aid in decreasing Medicare spending, it’s important for health care facilities to understand where this money comes from and how it is spent. In the Medicare Spending infographic, you will learn more about:
