§ 40-8.4-5. Managed care.
The delivery and financing of the health care services provided under this chapter shall be provided through a system of managed care. A managed care system integrates an efficient financing mechanism with quality service delivery, provides a "medical home" to assure appropriate care and deter unnecessary and inappropriate care, and places emphasis on preventive and primary health care.
