The authors describe an evaluation of the influences on service access, adequacy, and appropriateness in four capitated public mental health programs. Access, adequacy, and appropriateness were higher than the fee for service programs, suggesting that the financial incentive in capitation was not a significant limiting factor. Access and adequacy were also limited by new program effects as well as by case manager and client preferences.
