The year 1994 witnessed a tumultuous political debate about the future of health care financing in the US. But while Washington was focused on legislative wrangling, the whole health care landscape was transforming itself. It is said that 51% of all full-time workers in the US are currently enrolled in some type of managed care arrangement, often with little understanding of what managed care means. As the institutional context changes, health care professionals are faced with dilemmas which were never contemplated in the fee-for-service system and which seem to put important values in jeopardy. Moderated by Arthur R. Miller.
