Health reform, year seven: Observations about Medicaid managed care.
Date of Pub
Over the last 7 years, State and Federal policymakers have reformed State medical assistance programs and, in the process,

nearly one-quarter of all States have implemented health care reform demonstrations, and this article summarizes trends seen
since health care reform began in the 1990s. As well as noting the accomplishments of health care reform through the use of
Medicaid managed care, this article speculates, based on recent evidence, about new directions health care reform may take
in the future.
