Managed Care; Managed Care Contracting
This issue brief, prepared by the George Washington University Center for Health Services Research and Policy (CHSRP), presents an analysis of a sample of contractual agreements entered into by State Departments of Corrections with managed care organizations (MCOs) for the provision of managed behavioral health care services in State prisons. It is part of a series of contract studies undertaken by CHSRP that examine the implications of managed care contracting by public and private sector purchasers for the financing and delivery of behavioral health care services.
