Field of medicine: Health policy and management and Medicaid managed care.
Format: Hardcover book.
Audience: Physicians, administrators, policymakers, and advocates for Medicaid recipients.
Purpose: To explore the essential elements of the managed care strategy for Medicaid.
Content: This book is a collection of 18 essays by health services researchers that analyze Medicaid managed care, its historical context, its implementation in several states, its applicability to disabled and other special needs populations, and its potential for monitoring quality and provider performance. Because more and more states are turning to mandatory managed care assignment to control costs and to restructure their Medicaid programs, this book comes at a critical time for assessing the ability of managed care to fulfill these promises.
