Insurance, Managed Care

  • Larry D. Florman


At the time of this writing the system of healthcare insurance in the United States is undergoing major changes. This changing scenario will likely last for years and will not be pleasant to understand or deal with. You must become at least superficially knowledgeable with the system as it will affect your day to day practice even as a resident or fellow.

This chapter will describe the system as it is today. In fact, it is changing rapidly, and very randomly. The basics are needed during training. The details can wait till you are in practice.
