Managed Care and Low-Income Populations: A Case Study of Managed Care in Tennessee
This report is an update to the July 1995 case study on managed care in Tennessee released as part of the Kaiser/Commonwealth Low-Income Coverge and Access Project.To gather early insights and timely information for state and federal policymakers concerning how the restructuring of programs serving low-income people is affecting their insurance coverage and access to care, The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and The Commonwealth Fund are jointly sponsoring the Low-Income Coverage and Access Project. This is a large scale effort to monitor changes in health care delivery and financing and the impact of managed care for low-income populations in seven states: California, Florida, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas. Information is being collected through case studies, surveys, and focus groups to assess changes in health insurance coverage and access to care from the perspectives of numerous key stakeholders — consumers, state officials, managed care plans, and providers.
