Conglomerate, Inc. (A)
A physician in charge of health care premiums in a large division of a Fortune 10 company is trying to devise ways to keep costs down. The (A) case has him looking at lots of data and trying to exercise leverage on providers to adopt his approaches by contracting with only one managed care plan. In the (B) case, his apparently successful plan falls apart when a large customer of another of the company's divisions (who lost revenue as a result of the cost-containment approaches) threatens to withhold purchases unless the new approaches are abandoned

Sonsonala (A)
The (A) case has a twofold focus: (1), to project a budget for pharmaceuticals in a developing country based on the cost drivers of morbidity patterns, required drug regimens, and unit costs, and to focus on ways in which the budget might be cut if necessary; (2), to prepare a modified version of a breakeven analysis for some community pharmacies. The (B) case focuses on the financing of a revolving fund for essential drugs. The case is deceptively simple since a revolving drug fund that is either growing in size or operating in an inflationary economy needs a constant injection of working capital. This case uses some calculations that were made in the (A) case.

Usuluteca (A)
This case has a twofold purpose. First, to get students thinking about the problem of a national policy for essential drugs from two perspectives: types of problems and timing of solutions. Second, to get them to begin thinking about the design of a national policy in terms of (a) the types of problems, (b) what is a feasible approach in the short term and the long term, and (c) what is not feasible to address.

Usuluteca (B)
A follow-on to the (A) case. The director of maternal and child health services is attempting to develop a policy for essential drugs. He has convened a meeting with many of the interest groups. Not surprisingly, they don’t agree. Students must identify the policy options and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. They also must do a stakeholder analysis.

Westinghouse and Managed Care
A rich and detailed case showing how Westinghouse manages its healthcare costs. No teaching note, but nevertheless can be an excellent vehicle for a class discussion on how corporations can manage their healthcare costs. Might be paired with the Conglomerate (A) and (B) cases.

Wheeling Cardiology Associates
Three cardiology groups wish to merge. Several themes are introduced, the major topic being anti-trust. An overview of anti-trust laws is provided in the case, and the particularly issue of anti-trust in health care is developed. The Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI) is explained and suggested as a tool to be used to define market concentrations and identify potential anti-competitive situations. The protagonist is a consultant who may have to structure her analysis to meet her client’s needs rather in the most objective way possible.
