State Regulation of Managed Care: Fragments of Reform
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1997 Dec; 7(4): 345-351.

After identifying the legal, political, and economic barriers to state reform efforts, the paper assesses recent types of state regulation, particularly mandated benefits and disclosure requirements. Two prerequisites to future reform, coalition building and the diffusion of information about managed care, are analyzed.
