Managed Care

Managed care makes room for the elderly and the poor

Having helped to contain health insurance costs for working Americans and their children, managed care is now enrolling increasing numbers of Medicare and Medicaid recipients. Among the 20 largest national managed care organizations, for example, 19 serve Medicare enrollees and all 20 include members on Medicaid. In most cases, however, neither program yet accounts for a very large share of these companies' total enrollments.
