Assessing the Influence of Medicaid Managed Care on Health Care Delivery Change


Managed care organizations have the potential to deliver quality health care to vulnerable populations while also containing cost growth. With millions of new Medicaid beneficiaries expected in 2014 under health reform, it is important to assess the extent to which Medicaid managed care organizations have thus far encouraged improvements in care delivery. Georgetown University investigators will interview health care providers in hospitals, medical practices, and other care settings in four communities across four states to shed light on the delivery system changes these plans have fostered and the impact different managed care models have had on patients. The findings will inform policymakers, state Medicaid administrators, and plan sponsors about the most effective plan designs.
