  • Using Medicare Savings to Pay for New Health Care Spending - Net Savings

    Jul 30 2009

    Associated Image If all net savings from Medicare were applied to reducing the unfunded liability of the Medicare HI trust fund, the trust fund’s 75-year unfunded liability would decline by 15 percent or slightly more than $2 trillion in present value terms. Applying net Medicare savings toward reducing the HI trust fund’s unfunded liability would extend the date of trust fund insolvency by two years from 2017 to 2019.
  • Using Medicare Savings to Pay for New Health Care Spending - Gross Savings

    Jul 30 2009

    Associated Image If new spending was eliminated and the gross savings applied to the HI trust fund, the gross savings over the 75-year window would amount to approximately $15 trillion (2009 dollars). Expressed in present value terms, the reductions would amount to $4.2 trillion or 31 percent of the HI trust fund’s present value deficit. Applying gross reductions without spending increases for new programs would move the date of trust fund insolvency from 2017 to 2024 – seven years.
