Miami-Dade county leads nation in Medicare spending per beneficiary

South Florida Business Journal, June 4, 2013

Medicare beneficiaries in Miami-Dade County lead the nation in funds spent on their care per capita, according to new federal data. The report by the Department of Health and Human Services found that Medicare spent $16,723 in 2011 for every Medicare beneficiary in Miami-Dade, which was 75 percent higher than the national average. The good news for Uncle Sam is that figure was down from $16,786 in 2010. It's long been known that Medicare spending is high in Miami-Dade, and medical providers tend to charge more here than in other markets.
