Although managed care affects over 100 million Americans and continues to extend its reach across this country, its successes are often overshadowed by a deterioration of consumer confidence, as evidenced by the literally thousands of legislative and regulatory initiatives aimed at taming managed care. Managed Care on Trial explores the ethical and legal issues that arise from managed care and offers a prescription for the eroding confidence in the system by resorting trust, integrity and accountability. Managed Care on Trial seeks to arm the physician and other healthcare providers with knowledge that will better enable them to bridge the gap between fscal mandates and clinical standards, and to negotiate with payors as active partners rather than passive recipients in dealing with the challenges of marketplace demands. It is also oriented as a guide for consumers seeking better ways of addressing and solving the problems posed by the rapid transformation of the healthcare system. Included in the book are reviews of some of the most dramatic legal cases involving managed care.
