Dr. Hogan, a healthcare economist and statistician, has extensive experience on Medicare program issues, such as capitation and risk adjustment methodology, healthcare access, physician payment methodology, and healthcare needs of the aged. He specializes in health services research projects requiring skilled analysis of cost and utilization data.
As a consultant, Dr. Hogan offers hands-on, data-based analysis of complex healthcare issues. Current and recent projects include a study of Alzheimer's patients' costs (for the Institute for the Study of Aging), trends in private insurers' physician fees and spending (for the State of Maryland), and analysis of drug costs and coverage for rural Medicare beneficiaries (for Project Hope).
At MedPAC and PPRC, a predecessor organization, he was the principal analyst for several key issues, including Medicare beneficiaries' access to physician care, the "gap" between Medicare's physician fees and those paid by private insurers, risk selection and risk adjustment in the Medicare+Choice program, and care at the end of life.
Dr. Hogan has held positions at several consulting firms and was also a Service Fellow at the National Center for Health Services Research. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from Northwestern University and a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Virginia.
