Description - The Psychiatrist's Managed Care Primer by American Psychiatric Association

Because an increasing number of patients are covered through managed care plans, psychiatrists need to understand the managed care system in order to answer their patients' questions and ensure the continued prosperity of their practices. To assist clinicians in these challenging times, "The Psychiatrist's Managed Care Primer" aims to arm psychiatrists with the information and tools they need to flourish within this environment while simultaneously delivering quality patient care. This monograph provides an overview of the evolution of this industry; detailed explanations of current managed care models, operations and anticipated trends; and practical advice on key problem areas. It focuses on the pressing issues of utilization management and capitation as well as important regulatory, ethical and legal issues psychiatrists confront under this system. The potential impact that managed care systems have on their patient referrals, clinical decision-making autonomy, and income is also examined closely. Equipped with the understanding of managed care supplied by this primer, psychiatrists should be able to make the important decisions that will ensure the survival of their practice.
