Concepts of Managed Care 


Discussion Topic-

A typical health plan network consists of a variety of clinical professions. Many are physicians; however, there are non-physician specialties included within networks as well. 

For this week’s discussion forum, delineate and explain the differences between primary care providers (PCPs) and specialty care physicians (SCPs).

How are hospital-based physicians (HBPs/Hospitalists) different from “typical” patient care healthcare professionals/providers (e.g. PCPs, RNs, LPNs, PAs, etc.)?

Last, why do you think some providers choose to not contract with certain or all payers/health insurance plans?
