Abstract: Recent German health care reforms were intended to increase efficiency and quality of medical supply by introducing managed care (MC). Participation of physicians in MC contracts, however, is still limited. This study econometrically identifies factors determining physicians’ MC participation. The data has been obtained from a telephone survey among 500 German physicians. Economic implications of our results regarding future MC development in Germany are discussed.
