Evolution of Medicaid Relationship with the Private Market Medicaid is a joint venture between the federal government and the state governments. However, the private insurance market nevertheless plays a large role in this relationship. Most medical services for Medicaid recipients are obtained through private market plans that provide minimum Medicaid-approved benefits. Medicaid costs are subsequently reimbursed by state and federal funds that are set aside for Medicaid. Furthermore, more than half of Medicaid beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care plans in comparison to fee-for-service plans, in which Medicaid directly pays health providers based on the services that they provide [24].

Of note, Part B has a deductible feature. As part of this feature, patients pay up to a certain amount for the cost of their care (hence deductible). After this amount has been reached, Medicare then pays for 80 % of the cost for approved services, while the beneficiary is responsible for the remaining 20 %. The Part B deductible was $140 in 2012 [6]. Evolution of Medicare Changes to Program Administration Upon passage of the Medicare law, implementation of the program was originally headed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
