Within the context of the findings and recommendations of the recent Military Health Care Study (MHCS) the concept of decentralized management is examined. The implications for the concept's application (decentralization) in the Military Health Services System (MHSS) are considered. Based on option 3 of recommendation 3 of the MHCS, i. e. , "Implement a regional management structure which allocates resources, including funds, facility and personnel, " a regional management structure is posited which includes a Regional Health Planning Agency (RHPA) for the MHSS. The potential interface of the three principal actors of the posited regional management structure (the regional authority, RHPA and regional medical center/facility) are considered.
