Midwestern Town the Anti-McAllen, TX, for Medicare Costs



Doctors in McAllen, TX, became part of the growing national furor over rising healthcare costs with a June New Yorker magazine article, pointing out that the area cost the government $15,000 per Medicare beneficiary in 2006. In Winona, MN, Medicare costs are about two-thirds less than those in McAllen, says Mike Allen, CFO of Winona Health. Allen says the HSA is "the anti-McAllen," citing strong coordinated care efforts as one of the primary reasons.
