Abstract

In this chapter, we consider the distribution of payors of general hospital psychiatric care. For medical care in general hospitals, we know that 29% of all expenditures are paid by Medicare (Stevens, 1989). Medicaid is much less of a player in general hospitals, because the majority of its funds go to nursing-home care nationally.
