A readable survey of capitation organizations, their operations, and their economics. This book gives substantial detail about the calculation of capitation rates, risks, and cost-containment. One chapter covers disease management programs in capitation organizations; another looks at the particular considerations of primary care physicians. For individual physicians, the book's value will lie in providing 1) a picture of what physicians will encounter if they sign up with a capitation-type medical organization and 2) questions that physicians should ask before signing up.
