Health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and competitive medical plans (CMPS) are currently paid on a risk basis under Medicare, using an adjusted average per capita cost (AAPCC) method which measures the average Medicare expenditures in the fee-for-service sector for a geographic area.
The problem is that, so far, this shift has cost Medicare money because the HMOs get paid 95 percent of the Adjusted Average Per Capita Cost, the so-called AAPCC that Medicare experiences in the elderly beneficiary's county under the current fee-for-service system.
