Managed care is a health care delivery system
orgamzed to manage cost, utilization, and qual-
ity” (, 2017, p. 1). These include
decisions about the need for and appropriateness
of such things as tests, medical procedures, and
treatments provided by health care staff. Mooney,
Knox, and Schacht (2015) explain that managed
care involves “insurance companies monitoring
and controlling the decisions of health care pro-
viders…. [by requiring] doctors to receive approval
before they can hospitalize a patient, perform
surgery, or order an expensive diagnostic test”
(p. 45). Managed care has become an integral part
of social work practice in many fields. Managed
care organizations attempt to retain quality by con-
trolling costs. Means of controlling costs include
capitation, gatekeeping, and utilization manage-
ment. Physicians and patients generally feel that
health care has declined since the advent of
managed care. Managed care will likely continue,
although many difficult issues are involved. Social
workers can actively advocate for improvements.
