    That wasn't my intention. Some one who thought they were funny kept sending unprintable replies to everyones' posts and that was why I had to resend my question.

    I couldn't find any good information online -- but in general managed health care systems save money by:
    * fewer doctor visits
    * less expensive and fewer medications
    * fewer diagnostic tests
    * less access to specialists
    * more stringent requirements for emergency care

    Thank you.
