The 1990s saw the emergence of managed care into the Medicare marketplace. In the beginning of the decade nearly all beneficiaries
were in the Medicare fee-for service (FFS) program. In 1991 there were only 1 million Medicare risk health maintenance organization
(HMO) members accounting for a little over 3 percent of the Medicare population.
