Medicare and Medicaid Markets Provide Growth Opportunity for Managed Care Organizations

Manasquan, N.J. -- Managed care organizations are looking to the Medicare and Medicaid markets as growth opportunities, according to the recently published Managed Care Yearbook, Fourth Edition.

The Managed Care Yearbook looks at the factors influencing Medicare market growth, the largest-ever Medicaid waiver approved by the Health Care Financing Administration and the Medicare+Choices demonstration project.

The Managed Care Yearbook also covers criteria for success in the Medicaid managed care market, understanding the Medicare market, Medicaid managed care marketing tips, NCQA performance measures for Medicaid and how to prepare for a visit by HCFA after the initial Medicare risk contract.

The Yearbook details regulations and guidelines issued by the Health Care Financing Administration for Medicare managed care plans, such as Medicare managed care marketing, communication contract limitations and mastectomy length of stay.

You'll also get details on the variation in Medicaid managed care contracts by state, how states are moving from primary care case management programs to Medicaid capitated programs and a waiver received by the Mesa County (Colo.) Rocky Mountain HMO from the Health Care Financing Administration that gives Mesa County the flexibility to offer provider services based on individual need rather than on Medicaid program guidelines and definitions to implement a care coordination team for members who need long term care or services to address chronic or ongoing health problems.

Within the 478 pages of The Managed Care Yearbook, Fourth Edition, you'll also have access to information on managed care trends, cost containment, healthcare quality assurance, accreditation, making managed care work, member retention strategies, innovations, mental health, legislation and regulations affecting managed care, management information systems, executive compensation and managed care market news.

The Managed Care Yearbook, Fourth Edition, is available for $243.50, which includes shipping and handling.
