Managed Care and Low-Income Populations: Case Study of Managed Care in Maryland

This report analyzes Maryland's Medicaid managed care program, HealthChoice, an ambitious and broad-reaching effort to reform the financing and delivery of health care for over 300,000 low-income individuals. Implemented in 1997, HealthChoice contains certain innovative features not found in many other state reform efforts, such as protections for traditional providers and development of a new risk adjustment system. This report is one of a series of reports from The Kaiser/Commonwealth Low-Income Coverage and Access Project. This project examines how changes in the Medicaid Program have affected health insurance coverage and access to care for the low-income population in eight states: California, Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas.
