Little research has examined whether Medicaid managed care plans (MCPs) that incorporate case management are effective in
coordinating services for children with special health care needs. This study evaluates the effects of enrollment of special
needs children into a partially capitated MCP (with ongoing case management) versus the fee-for-service option on use of therapeutic
services, specifically speech, occupational, and physical therapy by site of service (school versus health care sector).
