MYTH OF MANAGED CARE 6 The myth of Managed Care Marion Allen Rasmussen College Foundations of Managed Care May 31, 2020 Part 1: Outline The main myth that drew my attention is that managed care is that HMOs threaten the quality of care. HMOs equal (bad) for-profit medicine. This research shall report on the validity or invalidity of this myth. From my point of view, the myth is invalid as it will be supported by the points highlighted below: 1) The goal of HMOs is to ensure that there is enough health care is available to society at the most affordable means. 2) HMOs exist as insurance set up for the cultural aspects of the people. This is due to the presence of the domineering medicinal culture in this land. The topics in this writing shall include: 1) Fact elaboration-this will describe the fact about the myth presented here. It is factual to say that 0.89 of members of HMOs in Massachusetts are non-profit mind oriented. Most of the members here are among the excellent members of the country (Luft, 1980). 2) The impact of the myth to the public. It takes the bold citizens to refute this myth, and probably, the teenagers are in the light of successfully rebutting it. Under this topic, I shall include two subtopics which include: 2a) The impact of the myth on the teenagers 2b) The effect of the myth on the seniors. Society is made to believe in the worse managed health care. 3) The impact of the myth on the objective of HMOs (Relman & Reinhardt,1986). The main aim of HMOs is to enhance excellent health care that many citizens can afford. 4) Impact of the myth on the economy. The following are the sub-topics under this topic: 4a) Impact on the local economy. 4b) Impact on the global economy. Part 2: Annotated Bibliography Christianson, J. B., Sanchez, S. M., Wholey, D. R., & Shadle, M. (1991). The HMO industry: Evolution in population demographics and market structures. Medical Care Review, 48(1), 3-46. The authors, Christianson et al., reviewed the topic under the HMO industry and came up with a conclusion that HMOs were in existence in the 1980s and helped in improving the lives of the citizens in the United States. They wrote that the prolonged stay of the patients in the hospitals made people include political oppositions. The contribution of these authors is useful in this research as it helps in analyzing the impact of the myth on the various individuals in society, specifically the seniors who spread political stories. It helps in determining the validity of the myth. Luft, H. S. (1980). Assessing the evidence on HMO performance. The Milbank Memorial Fund Quarterly. Health and Society, 501-536. Luft is an author who contributed to the literature concerning the profit issue related to the HMOs. It is evidenced that prepaid services have been in place for a long time in the USA, and thus this constitutes the culture of health providers. In writing, this author explains how traditional medicine men view managed care. It is done in a way to reduce the cost of operations to ensure that the physicians receive huge profits. This author’s contribution is vital as it sheds light on what to talk about in my research concerning the impact of the myth concerning profitability issues. Relman, A. S., & Reinhardt, U. E. (1986). Debating for-profit health care and the ethics of physicians. Health Affairs, 5(2), 5-31. Relman and Reinhardt Wrote about the for-profit and the ethics of the physicians. The physicians in this context form the part of the community in which my study intends to study how the myth at hand impacts it. Thus, using this knowledge, this research shall be sufficient.
