  1. Managed care and people with disabilities : Framing the issues.

    Article - En anglais

    A physical, cognitive, or mental disability presents significant challenges to an individual in gaining access to a coordinated program of preventive, primary, and secondary health care services.

    This article describes the health care needs of people with disabilities and discusses how the financial incentives in managed care may threaten access to the health care services they need to maintain their health and functional independence.

    We argue that despite the shortcomings of present models, managed care has the potential to improve the health care of people with disabilities.

    Moreover, as health plans become increasingly accountable to consumers (and begin to compete on the basis of quality), they will not be able to ignore the distinct health care needs of people with disabilities.
