Medicare eyes costs in Miami

Miami Herald, April 14, 2009

Long notorious for its high healthcare costs, Miami has been chosen by Medicare as one of 14 communities for a pilot project seeking to eliminate unnecessary hospital readmissions. Miami has long been known for having the highest Medicare costs per senior citizen in the nation—or close to it. The average Miami senior costs about twice as much per year as does one in Minneapolis. The program will be overseen by Florida's Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, a Tampa-based subsidiary of Health Services Holdings.
