Second-Generation Medicaid managed care: Can it deliver?
Date of Pub
This article offers insight into what we term "second-generation" Medicaid managed care. In case studies of seven States,
we examined three critical questions: (1) Does managed care experience facilitate program operations? (2) Can Medicaid managed
care deliver on important goals? And (3) Can States extend the program beyond low-income families and children to others?
The answers are encouraging but also suggest caution. Medicaid managed care is not a solutions to fundamental problems facing
the Medicaid program. It may be a tool to encourage better delivery of care. This requires a long-term commitment and adequate
financing to develop stable partnerships with all stakeholders.
