  1. Fulltext. HMO vs fee-for-service care of older persons with acute myocardial infarction.

    Article - En anglais


    Health maintenance organizations (HMOs) continue to grow in number and in their enrollment of medicare recipients.

    They are also increasingly viewed as organizational structures that might contribute to control of health care costs.

    Yet little is known about the quality of care that elderly HMO enrollees receive.

    We compared patients from three HMOs to a fee-for-service (FFS) sample that was national in scope.
