Readers can perhaps best understand this very important new study by reading this New York Times graphics-rich analysis of it.

As The Times noted, “The research looked not only at Medicare but also at a huge, new database drawn from private-insurance plans – the sorts used by most Americans for health care. And it shows that places that spend less on Medicare do not necessarily spend less on healthcare over all.”

The paper is scheduled to be released by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month.
