dc.description.abstractConclusion: The private insurance industry has entered a new and uncertain era. Consolidation appears inevitable, and ambitious efforts are under way to transform the traditional insurance business through managed care. The reformation of the small-group market through federal legislation looms ahead, although insurers and individual agents who sell policies to employers in that market are fighting it, fearing that this step will threaten their very existence. The jury is still out on the managed care, but one major question for practicing physicians is already clear. If physicians are providing the care, why should they not also manage it, in a fashion that would serve not only their own interests as professionals, but the interests of society as well? Perhaps physicians are too splintered into specialty groups and too preoccupied with the daily trials of practice to assume a larger management role, but the question is certainly worth more exploration. Unless they act more aggressively in groups to achieve equal influence with third parties in the responsible allocation of resources, physicians may not be full partners in the health care organizations of tomorrow.en
