Overview

This book addresses the impact of managed care on clinical practice. In each chapter a specific area of practice is discussed by two industry leaders -- a clinician and managed care executive. Also presented is a critique of managed care from the perspective of patients and families. By promoting dialogue and increasing the level of understanding between mental health care providers and managed care reviewers, Allies and Adversaries should help both to better serve patients and themselves, and to effectively contribute to the shape of the emerging mental health care system.
