Isi artikel"It's time for Dancing with the Stars!", a woman announces enthusiastically. At this New York health centre, wedged between housing projects to the east and Chinatown to the west, "dancing with the stars" means dancing with a physical therapist. An old man stands up with a nurse and begins a determined samba. Comprehensive Care Management (CCM), which runs this centre, tries to keep old people active. To do so, explains Joseph Healy, the chief operating officer, is in the company's best interest. The government pays CCM a capped rate for the care of its members. If someone gets sick, his health costs rise and the company's margin shrinks. Mr Healy argues that the system is the best way to provide good care at a low cost. Increasingly others seem to agree. Medicaid, America's health programme for the poor, is in the process of being transformed. Over the next three years, New York will move its entire Medicaid population into "managed care", paying companies a set rate to tend to the poor, rather than paying a fee for each service. New York is not alone. States from California to Mississippi are expanding managed care. It is the culmination of a steady shift in the way most poor Americans receive their health-care treatment.
