Abstract

Previous case studies indicate that some family planning centers are transforming themselves into providers of primary care services, in part as a strategy to attract managed care contracts. Data for 98 family planning centers from the 1994 National Survey of Women's Health Centers and supplementary sources are used to explore the factors associated with managed care contracting. Although some organizational-level factors are predictive, no cross-secional association was found between providing primary care and managed care contracting, which suggests family planning centers are not using primary care as a major contracting strategy.
