Mandated managed care for Medicaid recipients.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The need to control governmental health expenditures has led to experiments with mandated managed care for Medicaid recipients. Loss of freedom to choose care providers was considered a worthy sacrifice. The authors examine the historical and legislative background, including research and demonstration projects. Although they view some form of rationing as inevitable, they argue that Medicaid recipients should not be singled out to bear the main part of the burden.
