James Cosgrove talked about Medicare’s experimental Quality Bonus Payment Demonstration program that allows recipients to receive their benefits through private health insurance plans, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid designed the experiment program to give financial bonuses to private care plans that provide “exceptional care & financial incentive.” The Governmental Accountability Office, however, found that the money was being paid largely to “average performing plans.”

This program was part of C-SPAN’s “Your Money” series. Each Monday morning the last hour of “Washington Journal” is devoted to a federal program, focusing on its mission, participants, and cost. close
