This week on Off the Charts, we focused on health policy, Social Security, and the federal budget.
On health policy, Edwin Park explained how policymakers could reduce overpayments to Medicare Advantage plans. Jesse Cross-Call noted that Wisconsin’s failure to adopt health reform’s Medicaid expansion is proving costly for the state.
On Social Security, Kathy Ruffing showed why the Netherlands is not a model for Disability Insurance reform, contrary to some claims.
On the federal budget, Richard Kogan set the record straight on the causes and meaning of the recent reestimate of student loan costs.
