ABSTRACT
In his book 'Managed Care: Made in America,' Arnold Birenbaum chronicles the transformation of traditional, indemnity-style health insurance plans and the retrospective, cost-based reimbursement system of which they were a part into the prospectively oriented, fixed-payment managed care programs that dominate today's healthcare marketplace. Birenbaum frames the analysis as a study of social change; this approach offers great promise, as the emergence of managed care has been accompanied by myriad and dramatic effects at individual, organizational, and societal levels.
