What is a Managed Care Plan?

            The essence of managed care is lower medical cost in exchange for more limited choice.  The plan uses a small pool of contracted (or in-network) providers to lower cost.  Some of the money saved is passed onto the member’s premiums.

 

Part of the "Understanding Insurance" series.
