What can you access on the Managed Care Institute's website for free?
While many of you will decide to subscribe on the Managed Care Institute's paid membership programs, or student program, some of you may not be able to arrange for your employer to cover the cost, or you may be a freelance consultant without a budget for membership at this time. We totally understand, and we hope you'll keep us in mind for the future, and find benefit in the membership amenities available to you.
For those who simply want to participate in the forums and groups, or listen to some of the podcasts and free educational events we sponsor, you are most welcome.
Membership in Groups and Forums is Free
Your are welcome to subscribe to and participate in any group or forum. Groups and forums are here for the purpose of sharing information, lessons learned, best practices. You are welcome to post questions, problems your are facing in your work, or ask about something that you just aren't sure about. There's always someone willing to help. Just ask. When people respond, mind your manners and say thanks. If that person is close by, invite them for a coffee or a beer. Make it real!
Creating New Groups and Forums on our Member Platform
All our groups and forums are started by the website administrator. Therefore, please ask us to launch a new group if you don't see what you need.
We do this for two reasons:
- First our website is not associated with a non-profit association. It is a proprietary website, owned by Dr Maria Todd, the author of The Managed Care Contracting Handbook, 2nd edition several other professional book titles on integrated health delivery systems, concierge medicine, medical tourism, and more. The site is maintained through the support staff and employees on the payroll of Mercury Healthcare International. Lots of work and dedication is required to maintain the site, pay for hosting, design, and website functionality. It isn't polite or acceptable to post ads or clearly promotional posts without her express written consent any more than it would be appropriate for Dr Todd to do that on your website. There are no second chances on this policy. The idea of asking for forgiveness instead of permission doesn't fly here.
- The second reason we do this is for quality control. On LinkedIn there are hundreds of groups that are redundant of one another. the same with Facebook. Most have gone quiet since they changed policy and functional design almost a year ago. Some never gained traction and then withered and died. Some languish without any recent posts or posts that are spammy allowed by an absent group manager. Eventually members become disinterested and no longer engage.
