Managed care transcends beyond just administrative technologies for regulating medical care use and the growth of the costs of health care. It now encompasses all the health care transformation and financing in the United States. Managed care organizations have one common characteristic. This is the growing integration between the roles of the provider and the insurer. As a result, there is an enhanced vertical integration in the health care sector. The structure of American health care today is characterized by an integration of systems that offer full-service ranges, which are financed by capitation payments and depend on management information and state of the art medical systems. This is a shift from the traditional framework which was pigeon-holed by independent community hospitals and solo physician practices. This change has been necessitated by several legislations aimed at reforming the American health care system. One such legislation is the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
