New Resource Presents Practical Strategies for Medicare
Managed Care Plans and Providers
Manasquan, N.J. -- The growth of Medicare managed care challenges senior services providers
and managed care plans. Senior services providers wonder how they can position their programs
and services for managed care. Managed care plans wonder how they can attract and retain
senior members. And, both wonder how they can work together to meet the complex needs of
seniors in a managed care environment.

The Executive Guide to Medicare Managed Care describes some practical strategies to help
senior services providers position their programs and services to get access to managed care
dollars and managed care patients, and to help managed care plans attract and retain members.

help them hold onto their enrollees.
