Abstract

Managed health care, through prepaid health delivery systems and utilization review organizations, is perhaps the greatest trend in modern health care. The authors examine the remarkable growth of managed care and outline its clinical, economic, ethical, and practical implications. They then review examples of how organized psychiatry has been involved in managed care and describe the efforts to date of the Massachusetts Psychiatric Society in this area. Managed care is here to stay. The future climate of psychiatric practice and the care available to psychiatric patients are dependent on informed and organized activities by psychiatrists and their local and national representatives.
