This session will focus the management of health disease as an important challenge for low-income patients to receive access to care, noting the importance of policy makers’ awareness that access restrictions can have adverse consequences on adherence and compliance. The session will also include a presentation on a study designed to quantify individual healthcare expenditure by age, the evolution of both health status and dependency among the elderly, and to estimate the relationships among them. We will also discuss geriatric care management impact on the quality of care and improving medical utilization outcomes for Medicare HMO members.
