5-Slide Series

This edition looks at Medicaid and Medicare combined costs. Nationwide, 2009 combined claims-based spending on Medicaid and Medicare represented approximately $800 billion in overall outlays, excluding most disproportionate share (DSH) and upper payment limit (UPL) supplemental payments. These claims-based expenditures were divided 42% for persons with Medicare coverage (but not Medicaid), 29% for persons with Medicaid coverage (and not Medicare), and 29% for Medicaid/Medicare dual eligibles. Together, Medicaid and Medicare represented 5.6% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), $2,582 per resident, and $5,740 per working person above age 16, (excluding active duty military personnel).
