Abstract : The Department of Defense, like many providers of medical care in the United States, is faced with controlling the cost of health care. DoD initiatives include the Civilian Health and medical Program for the Uniform Services (CHAMPUS) Reform Initiative (CRI), the Coordinated Care Program, and the Coordinated Care Support program, which will replace the CRI upon completion of the CRI demonstration. These programs will require the implementing military treatment facility to dedicate resources to an organized managed care function. David Grant USAF Medical Center (DGMC) has been tasked to implement managed care under more than one of the DoD initiatives, and therefore requires an organizational structure best suited to provide managed care under the guidelines of each program implemented. The purpose of this Graduate Management Project is to choose an organizational structure best suited for managed care at DGMC. The methods include a review of current literature and military operational guidance, design of alternative organizational structures, and an evaluation of those structures based on criteria developed from the literature review.
