Hot Off The Press

New Resource Presents Practical Strategies for Medicare Managed Care Plans and Providers

Manasquan, N.J. -- The growth of Medicare managed care challenges senior services providers and managed care plans. Senior services providers wonder how they can position their programs and services for managed care. Managed care plans wonder how they can attract and retain senior members. And, both wonder how they can work together to meet the complex needs of seniors in a managed care environment.

The Executive Guide to Medicare Managed Care describes some practical strategies to help senior services providers position their programs and services to get access to managed care dollars and managed care patients, and to help managed care plans attract and retain members. Senior services providers can increase their value to managed care organizations if they can help them hold onto their enrollees.

The introduction includes an overview of how the Medicare managed care program works; how the Medicare managed care program came about and why the growth of the Medicare managed care program has been larger in some areas and close to non-existent in others. The Executive Guide also explores the growth of Medicare managed care, provider-sponsored organizations, how seniors respond to managed care, and quality and outcomes measurement initiatives.

Chapters in The Executive Guide to Medicare Managed Care include: The Growth of Medicare Managed Care; Trends in Managed Care for Seniors; Assessing the Quality of Senior Care in Managed Care; How To Position Senior Services for Managed Care; Forge Partnerships for Managed Care; Quality and Outcomes Measurement; Managed Care Strategies To Attract and Retain Seniors; Medicare Managed Care Regulations and Legislation; Provider-Sponsored Organizations; and Forecasts for the Medicare Managed Care Market. Appendix I contains the Medicare+Choice Program provisions as they appeared in the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. Appendix II contains a list of managed care resources.

The Executive Guide to Medicare Managed Care will be available soon from Health Resources Publishing. The 181-page book is available for $179 (save $30 off the regular price of $209), plus $7.50 for shipping and handling.
