dc.description.abstractMedicare?s prospective payment system (PPS), introduced in 1983, pays hospitals a fixed pricefor each stay rather than reimbursing costs. Previous studies evaluated its first few years usingendogenous measures to control for heterogeneity in patients? health. We examine PPS over afull decade using competing risks Cox survival models and a national longitudinal survey withindependent information on patients? health. New findings include: risk of death in hospitalincreased; risk of discharge to a nursing home continued to increase as PPS matured; and risk ofnursing home admission from the community following hospital discharge rose. HMOs mayhave contributed to these outcomes.en_US
