Format: Paperback
The content of the book overall is well thought out and easy to read. Chapter 1, The Evolution of Managed Care, is an excellent chapter. The Medicaid and Medicare sections of Chapter 5 are excellent. Chapter, 7, Quality of Care, is an excellent chapter--one of the best on quality I've read. (reviewed by Carmella M. Sebastian, MD, Senior Medical Director, First Priority Health, The Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania HMO)

Format: Paperback
The book covers the basics in an understandable and logical order...it is well-organized and complete. Chapter 3, The Infrastructure of Managed Care, is very interesting and informative - is very good at describing how managed care organizations do what they do. Chapter 4, Provider Networks, and Chapter 5, Purchasers and Managed Care, are very good chapters with good descriptions of provider networks and purchasing arrangements. (Reviewed by Bernard J. Turnock, MD, MPH, Professor and Director of Community Health Sciences, School of Public Health, University of Illinois at Chicago.)

great book ,good information to obtain more info in the topic, but still needs other books to complement it..the wording is a little confusing and goes around the bushes without giving you a clear definition of thre topic at hand...but in general ...a ok book with good information on different topics related to managed care.

I purchased this textbook because it was required for my economic (Masters) class. This is book is relatively easy to read and understand. It is a good reference book and one that I shall keep for the future. If you are interested in economics or an economic major, this is a good resource, provided you work in healthcare.

Really helped with my project. Some information though is kind of vague but having this textbook as my guide really made my group's class presentation work. It would be nice if this book was used in the class.
