The Lewin Group has developed a model of health spending in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This model was designed to estimate the potential impacts of a single-payer insurance coverage program on health expenditures in that state over the 1998 through 2005 period compared to the projected impacts of the current system during the same time period. The model presents estimates of total program costs, net changes in total state health spending, changes in spending by type of service, and changes in administrative costs.
