Findings from the Medicaid Competition Demonstrations: a guide for states.

Anderson, Maren D; Fox, Peter D
The Medicaid Competition Demonstrations were initiated in 1983-84 in six States (California, Florida, Minnesota, Missouri,
New Jersey, and New York). State experiences in implementing the demonstrations are presented in this article. Although problems
of enrolling Medicaid recipients in prepaid plans or with primary care case managers under these demonstrations proved challenging
to States, lessons were learned in three key areas: program design and administration, health plan and provider relations,
and beneficiary acceptance. Therefore, States considering similar programs in the future could benefit from these findings.
