Introduction
The rapid changes that occur in healthcare–particularly in managed care settings–create many challenges and opportunitiesthat result in innovative ways of commu-nicating with a linguistically diverse patientpopulation. Many managed care healthplans are charged with the translation of materials in many languages. In addition,there is a shortage of trained translators tohelp bridge this gap.Many health care organizations hirebilingual employees to assist in communi-cating needs and issues to members. Theintent of this glossary is to improve com-munication–both spoken and written–toour Spanish speaking members. As wemove to print this glossary, we know that367,121–or 45%–of our members preferthe Spanish language when communicatingwith us.

 English-Spanish Managed Care Glossary of Terms
isused to improve communication withSpanish speakers. Although this glossaryis not exhaustive, it reflects an attempt tounify the usage of words that are consis-tently used in a managed care setting.Many of the terms included in this glos-sary were gleaned from several sources.They include our evidence of coverage,member letters, marketing materials andhealth education brochures.In developing this glossary, many stepswere taken to ensure the quality of the

They are more accustomed towords like “hospital,” “clinic” and “doc-tor.” The word “provider” is especiallychallenging for translators: “provider,”translates as,
