Administrative Waste

See Reduce Administrative Waste under Cost Containment for evidence on the benefits and costs of various approaches to reducing administrative waste incurred by health insurers, health providers, and payers for which there is real-world evidence of net cost savings. This section is restricted to discussion of federal and state health reform policy proposals related to reducing administrative waste that are  under discussion and not yet adopted or implemented. This includes ideas that may have been adopted in other countries or other settings (e.g., large health plans, VA health system), but that have been proposed to be significantly expanded to other U.S. populations under comprehensive health reform.

  • See Single Payer under Health Reform, National Health Reform Plans for a discussion of net administrative savings attainable under various forms of single payer.
