Abstract
Case management for high-cost patients is offered by virtually all private insurers and many health management firms. Despite the proliferation of the service, little is known about the process of case management, how it varies among vendors, what its impact is on short- and long-run patient costs, and what its effects are on quality. In this article, the authors present the results of a survey of insurance-based programs that reveal some process variations that could lead to differences in program effectiveness and cost.
