    Too Many Words

    This text was required reading for my college class on Managed Health Care Organizations and I found it to be incredibly verbose. I might be biased as I work for a company that manages Medicaid MCOs across the country but I STRUGGLED to get through the material. It was as if someone made a vocabulary list of everything you need to know about MCOs and the author wrote about a column and a half about EVERYTHING. I found that my experience despite having worked in the industry over 10 years, meant very little in the diatribe that was this book. Recommendation? Not from me.
