    Managed care has grown tremendously over the last decade. 1 In , there were fewer than 8 million members; in , there were more than 53 million members. Increasing numbers of doctors are now working in managed care, and most new graduates of residency programs will spend their careers in capitated managed care practices. The physician may in turn sue the managed care organization, showing that he recommended the treatment to the managed care organization, the organization ignored the doctor's advice, and the physician was required by the managed care organization contract to follow the organization's decision. This defense is not a panacea, though. When you belong to an HMO managed care plan, you get a log book and you sign up with a PCP (the physician who manages your care). If you need to see a specialist, a PCP would write a referral to go see a specialist. The PCP anages both the quality of care and the cost. Under Section (3), of the AMA’s Code of Medical Ethics, it states: “When physicians are employed or reimbursed by managed care plans that offer financial incentives to limit care [which is all of them], serious potential conflicts of interest are created between the physician’s personal financial interests and the needs of their patients.
