Changed lines are preceeded by *.

* What is the difference between a patient and a member?

> A patient is anyone who receives medical treatment from your enterprise.

* A member is someone who is part of a managed care plan.

* An example of a member who is not a patient would include a person whose
dependents, for instance, are patients.

* An example of a patient who is not a member would be a person who is not
insured or is self insured under an indemnity plan.

> It is likely that most of your patients are eligible for membership in
some group care plan.

Glad I could help.
