Managed Care Attorney in Washington, DC
Managed care plans are a type of health insurance designed to reduce health
care costs and improve quality of care. They work by creating contracts
with certain health care providers or medical facilities, and offer their
services to members at reduced costs. Common examples of managed care
plans include Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO), Preferred Provider
Organizations (PPO), and Point of Service (POS) plans.

patients being harmed, often because these programs place profits over
people. When this happens, wronged consumers can assert their rights by
filing lawsuits against the responsible party.
