So, I just saw a Kevin Pho MD tweet flash by on my computer screen with the statement “Managed care is bad news for pregnant women.” I clicked on the link in the tweet and was taken to his blog site. Sure enough, there was an article with the title: “How managed care is bad news for pregnant women” written by Linda Burke-Galloway, an obstetrician-gynecologist and author of The Smart Mother’s Guide to a Better Pregnancy.
Having worked for managed care most of my life, I know a lot about the good, bad, and ugly of managed care. I am not an apologist for the industry, but neither am I a person who thinks the term “managed care” automatically connotes all things evil in health care. I am a member of a managed care plan and am quite happy.
