and vulnerable people in the United States. Using an integrated, proactive approach to health care, AmeriHealth Mercy has improved outcomes for our members and saved taxpayers millions of dollars. As the nation searches for high-quality, cost-effective health reform options, we offer a model that is proven to increase access to care and control costs."

"This study demonstrates what we see every day: that Medicaid managed care helps our most vulnerable citizens get the healthcare they need and, at the same time, saves money for State governments," said James G. Carlson, Chairman and CEO of AMERIGROUP Corporation. "At AMERIGROUP, our unique programs for people with disabilities and long-term illnesses help our members lead more independent lives by receiving proactive care to prevent unnecessary hospital stays or institutionalization. This approach helps them lead healthier and fuller lives and in the long run lowers the cost of Medicaid."

The study also noted that the FFS setting model makes coordination of care and cost-containment difficult, while health plans create savings opportunities without reducing eligibility and benefits.
