Managed care is a fundamental shift from the historical fee-for-service payment systems. It provides opportunities for states to transform the delivery and financing of Medicaid financed services and promote and reward improved care outcomes. Implementation of such programs requires thoughtful planning, active stakeholder engagement and an effective administrative infrastructure to manage and operate in a value based purchasing environment.
