ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report of Health Management Associates entitled, "Chronic Disease Management: Evidence of Predictable Savings" which highlights the efforts in the Indiana and North Carolina Medicaid programs. A 47-62% reduction in neonatal intensive care unit use was observed resulting from care management for high-risk pregnancies. Management of targeted congestive heart failure (CHF) population resulted to a decrease in hospital admission ranging from 21-48%. Such services are provided for members with asthma, diabetes and CHF.
