Case Management in Welfare and Medicaid Programs: An Annotated Bibliography.
Hallingby, Leigh, Comp.; And Others
This 60-item annotated bibliography focuses on case management as it relates to welfare, Medicaid, and/or the Family Support Act of 1988. While specific definitions, types of practice, and goals of case management vary greatly, the term here refers to a strategy of coordinating or integrating services for a client or group of clients in the social services and/or health arenas, e.g., maternal and child health, family support, and early childhood care and education. Section 1, "Overviews of Case Management," includes general discussions. Section 2, "Medicaid and Case Management," reflects the "managed care" or "gatekeeper" model of case management, stressing primary care and control of utilization and costs. Section 3, "Welfare Reform and Case Management," includes some of the newest perspectives on case management as a strategy for helping families become independent of welfare. Section 4, "Other Applications of Case Management," includes miscellaneous applications of case management to a variety of social and health services. All materials listed in this bibliography were published during or after 1985. Complete price and ordering information appears whenever available and appropriate. All of the publications are available to the public at the library of the National Center for Children in Poverty (New York, New York). (FMW)
