ABSTRACT
The article explains the role of unit of care model in managing healthcare costs in New Jersey. The model focused on applying treatment costs in computing for healthcare reimbursements from the state government, where the treatment costs include revenues of doctors and solutions used for treatment like bandages and drugs. Unit of care model is effective to making healthcare services cost-efficient when a healthcare system has doctors who prefer standardized fees for procedures.
