  1. Depressive symptoms and plan switching under managed care.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    A central assumption underlying managed care is that plan switching is a viable option for enrollees when they are dissatisfied.

    The authors used a national employee survey to test the hypothesis that this mechanism is less effective for enrollees with high levels of depressive symptoms than for the remainder of the population.

    Method 

    The study used data from the Employee Health Care Value Survey, a 1993 survey of 20,283 employees of three major corporations.

    They examined the relationship between symptoms and dissatisfaction and, for dissatisfied individuals, how symptoms predicted plan switching.

    Multivariate models were used to control for potential demographic, health, and health coverage confounders.

    Results 

    Depressive and physical symptoms were both associated with dissatisfaction with care.
