What Surgeons need to know to help patients receive quality medical care in managed care settings. Commentary.
Americans spend more than $3,300 per person per year on health care, an amount businesses, government, and citizens alike consider too high.
Managed care attempts to offer services at a lower cost, about 10% below that of indemnity insurance, and attempts to controls costs by modifying decisions historically made by physician and patient.
Many techniques have been used to modify the decision-making process, with varying effects on quality.
Surgeons can help sustain easily accessible, high-quality care through various personal behaviors and through choosing their managed care partners well.
