Information Package on Managed Care and Long-Term Supports for People with Developmental Disabilities.
Syracuse Univ., NY. Center on Human Policy.
This collection of papers on managed care and long-term supports for people with developmental disabilities includes a range of reprinted articles and resource materials that provide different kinds of information and opinions on the impact of managed care. Articles include: "A Position Statement on Managed Care and Long-Term Supports in Developmental Disabilities" (Center on Human Policy at Syracuse University and others), summarizing some of the principles and values that should underlie managed care if and when it is implemented; "Keeping the Faith: System Change, Managed Care and Long-Term Supports for People with Developmental Disabilities" (National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services, Inc.); "Overview and Implications of Medicaid Managed Care for People with Developmental Disabilities" and "Technical Elements, Demonstration Projects, and Fiscal Models in Medicaid Managed Care for People with Developmental Disabilities" (Theodore A. Kastner, Kevin K. Walsh, and Teri Criscione); and "Beware the Managed Health-Care Companies" (John Ashbaugh and Gary Smith), which provides a cautionary note on the managed care system. The final series of articles do not directly deal with long-term development disability services, but raise concerns from the broader disability rights community and include: "McManaging Your Health" (Billy Golfus and Wendy Brower); "Managed to Death" (Josie Byzek); and "Getting Up to Speed". Includes a list of resource organizations which can be contacted for additional and updated information on the status of managed care. (Most articles contain references.) (CR)
