The Chesapeake Health Plan: an HMO model for foster children.


The model of health care delivery described here is a successful, workable approach to meeting the health care needs of foster children. Given sufficient flexibility in the regulatory process, it may be adapted to a variety of definable, high-risk populations. The actual delivery of care depends in part upon the administrative and physical resources available, but it is equally dependent upon the philosophy of care of the program and its staff and upon cooperative efforts between health care and social service agencies.
