This data has been provided by the Stephen Group. They did this research when they recommended to Governor Hutchinson that Managed Care is a viable option for cost savings. This is being seriously considered by the legislature, and it is separate from the therapy cap that is passing through committees right now.
Before we know how to respond, we need to look at data on all sides of this issue. Please read this before you respond to your Representatives. But please know that these decisions are in work NOW. They have these facts that they believe support Managed Care. If you disagree, you will need facts as well. I hope to provide information against managed care as well to give a rounded view of the issue.
I have been given permission by the Stephen Group to share these files, and they have said that they welcome any of our questions.
