Abstract

Applying a "community benefit" standard to managed care is difficult because prevailing definitions of community benefit have been drawn largely from the hospital industry, which has different operating practices and capabilities than managed care plans do. To formulate a more comprehensive and appropriate typology for managed care, we describe four different conceptual perspectives on community benefit and identify actual plan practices that match each perspective. We propose a "balanced model" for encouraging community benefit through public and private policies.
