• Evaluate a managed care organization and its contract and negotiate with it.

From Book News, Inc.

Health care lawyers Lees and Steisel review the basics of managed care as a way of helping dentists decide whether or not to participate in it. Without endorsing managed dental care or entering the debate about its place in dentistry, they guide dentists through negotiating and contracting with such an organization. They include such elements as preparing a practice for a managed care environment, evaluating an organization, and constructing a capitation worksheet to make sure a fee structure is viable.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
