Abstract:

Private purchasers of health insurance have been one of the key forces in stimulating the development of systematic methods to evaluate the quality of care provided in managed care. The purpose of this report is to describe the method that was developed and the rationale for the choices that were made. A team at RAND was selected to develop the method for reporting on health plan performance under the direction of the Coordinated AutosUAW Reporting System CARS Steering Committee consisting of representatives from each of the three automobile manufacturers, the United Auto Workers UAW, the State of Michigan both as an employer and as a purchaser of services for Medicaid enrollees, and the Greater Detroit Area Health Council GDAHC.
