This is a nice two-page summary of current statistics related to the Medicare and Medicaid programs. It provides official federal government counts of people and money – the number of beneficiaries and persons served and a recap of national health expenditures. But WAIT! There’s more! I am excited to let you know of a count of the total number of providers by type in the U.S. How many total hospitals? How many hospitals of different types? How many skilled nursing facilities? Ambulatory surgery centers? Labs? And other types of providers. These are useful totals for business planners who are sizing the market for a new product, for example.
