In 1983, the Health Care Financing Administration funded a multiyear evaluation of Medicaid demonstrations in six States.
The alternative delivery systems represented by the demonstrations contained a number of innovative features, most notably
capitation, case management, limitations on provider choice, and provider competition. Implementation and operation issues
as well as demonstration effects on utilization and cost of care, administrative costs, rate setting, biased selection, quality
of care, and access and satisfaction were evaluated. Both primary and secondary data sources were used in the evaluation.
This article contains an overview and summary of evaluation findings on the effects of the demonstrations.
