Table 2 compares the percent change in the base years' 1982-1984 MCPI
with the percent change in the mean prescription reimbursement between CYs 1994-2003 and adjusts the mean prescription reimbursement based on 2003 dollars.
Interestingly, the 1990-96 period was marked by relative stability in price inflation but much public discussion on the need for, and probability of, a future reduction in the MCPI
less CPI differential.
Data from the MCPI
are used as proxies for prices and weights in producing most other medical care price series.
In reality, the MCPI
does not measure every component that accounts for total medical care cost increases.
