Annotation: This study reports on site visits made in order to evaluate the delivery of private sector managed care and private sector service provision for children with mental and emotional problems. The sites included for-profit and non-profit service providers. The report discusses the delivery of mental health care under the medical model, paid for by private health insurance, with a focus on acute episodes, contrasted to the public sector's development of a care delivery system. Appendices include site visit reports, values and principles for the system of care, a list of advisors and reviewers, qualified nominated organizations, and the private system of care questionnaire.
