This study examined the effect of the Civilian Health and Medical Plan of the Uniformed Services (CHAMPUS) Reform Initiative (CRI) in Hawaii.
Data are presented from 1986-1991 on the professions involved, outpatient and inpatient services rendered, and psychotherapy fees by profession.
This « medical gatekeeper » model of managed care, based on a system of referral to specialist services by primary care physicians and developed by a Hawaii medical group, yielded predictable results.
Whereas psychologists had been the dominant providers of outpatient mental health services since 1980 and had a minor presence in inpatient services, the implementation of CRI resulted in psychiatrists becoming the dominant outpatient provider and psychologists essentially being eliminated from hospital practice.
