Summary of "The Effects of Three Kinds of Insurance Benefit Design Features on Specialty Mental Health Care Use in Managed Care."

Insurance benefit features play a role in determining access to specialty mental health care. Previous research, primarily examining the effects of copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles in a fee-for-service setting, has concluded that specialty mental health use is highly sensitive to changes in financial requirements. Less is known about the effects of other benefit features and the effects of all of these features in a managed care environment.
