The way health care is financed in the United States is changing quickly. Fee-for-service arrangements in which health care providers exercised great autonomy over health care services financed by third-party payers is quickly giving way to a variety of managed care approaches. The driving force behind this change is the desire to control the growth of health care cost.

Either physician behavior or subscriber behavior is modified or limited.
