Paper Abstract

Fueled by employer demands to reduce medical costs and legitimized by the Clinton administration's reform proposals, a payer-driven revolution is transforming the U.S. health care industry. The main embodiment of change is managed care, an approach that relies on the health delivery system and the insurance mechanism to affect the cost and utilization of medical services while maintaining a certain level of quality.
