Regulating Managed Care
In today's market-driven health care system, issues such as consumer choice, access to specialists, denials of coverage, and "drive-through" methods of care delivery have been thrust to the forefront of the managed care debate. Wanting nothing more than to create a managed care system that is accessible and affordable--to all Americans-- policy makers, clinicians, and consumers are working to find the right balance between competition and regulation that will insure a high quality and compassionate health care system. But regulating markets is no easy task, and individuals-even those with similar objectives-differ on the major questions to be resolved. Can managed care be effectively regulated?
Managing Managed Care
What should be government's role in a market-oriented health care system?
Welcome to the great managed care debate. In Regulating Managed Care, twenty-six of the nation's leading health policy experts give health care administrators, clinicians, and policy makers insight into the issues behind this critical exchange and provide leaders with a road map to assess the policy options available to protect the quality of our health care delivery system.
"This collection of papers, from an extraordinary group of authors, makes a valuable contribution to the ongoing policy debate and will be of interest to anyone concerned with the future of our health care system."
"This balanced collection of cutting-edge papers reviewing the theory and practice of health regulation is a must read for those who regulate and for those regulated by this market-moving the debate from whether to regulate to how to do this most difficult task more effectively."
