Managed care and the survival of neurology referral centers A commitment to centers of excellence.
Since the collapse of federal health system reform legislation in 1994, there has been a growing concern with the quality of care provided within managed care systems. 1,2 Just as physicians practicing under a traditional fee-for-service payment base have financial incentives to do as much as possible for each patient (doing well by doing good), physicians working for managed care plans are sometimes given perverse incentives to do as little as possible. 3 A major quality-related concern among patients and payers (often referred to jointly and ambiguously as consumers of care) is the much larger role assigned to primary care physicians in managed care plans than is usually the case with traditional indemnity insurance.
