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.
