  • Covall, M. (2005, January). Medicare prospective payment comes to        psychiatric hospitals. Behavioral Health Management, 25(1), 54–57.
  • Oss, M. E. (2005). What’s next for managed behavioral health. (Cover story). Behavioral Health Management, 25(6), 11-14

  • What are some of the challenges faced by behavioral healthcare providers who operate in a managed care environment? What are some of the areas of conflict between behavioral healthcare providers and managed care? Which amongst these conflict areas do you think is the most crucial, and requires immediate attention, and why?
  • Will the managed care environment be able to support the services required to provide effective residential treatment?
