MANASQUAN, NJ--The National Directory of Managed Care Organizations, Fifth Edition, has been published by the Managed Care Information Center (MCIC).  Health insurance plans that offer consumer driven health plans (CDHPs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) are now included in this newest edition. The fifth edition also includes 2005 enrollment data, information that is not currently available from any other source.
Consumer driven health plan products are growing dramatically because the plans hold out the promise of employer savings and employee empowerment at the same time.   As health plans continue to adopt CDHP products, they will create more demand for disease management programs.  The fifth edition of The National Directory of Managed Care Organizations is a major resource for disease management, pharmaceutical, and all companies involved with managed care.

The directory includes market intelligence information on more than 1,500 managed care organizations, representing 5,180 plan types.
 
Along with profile listings of health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred provider organizations (PPOs), utilization review organizations (UROs), point-of-service plans (POS), and several other types of managed care organizations, the directory covers Specialty HMOs + PPOs, and includes details on pharmacy benefit management companies (PBMs), pharmacy networks, TPAs, provider-sponsored organizations (PSOs), POSs, EPOs, Medicare and Medicaid Plans, and Medicare+Choice plans. 

Profiles include company name and address, parent company, telephone number, fax number, key executive contacts, model type, plan type, service area, enrollment data, benefits covered and products provided, as well as other pertinent information.

Directory profiles also include details on type of coverage offered, profit status, accreditation, year founded, model type (staff, IPA, group, network or mixed), number of hospitals in the plan=s network, primary physicians and specialist physicians.
                            
The directory also identifies plans= financial and statistical information such as revenue, enrollment, medical loss ratios and administrative expense ratios.

Coverage of such areas as vision, dental benefits, wellness, behavioral health, home healthcare, chiropractic, physical therapy, podiatry, transplant, long-term care and psychiatry is also included in the profile data.

The "National Directory of Managed Care Organizations, Fifth Edition," is available in four formats: a 732-page print volume; a CD-ROM edition in PDF format, a database on CD-ROM, and an online version accessible via MCIC's Web site: www.themcic.com.

The CD-ROM edition in PDF provides high speed searching, while the database on CD-ROM is delivered in a format that imports into most database and spreadsheet programs.

The online database incorporates searching capability with an option to download search results for importing into other database or spreadsheet programs.

The Managed Care Information Center (MCIC) gathers, collects, compiles, analyzes, studies, interprets and distributes business news and information on the managed care industry. MCIC has produced the directory since 1997, with continual updates and revisions.  The data in this newest directory has been collected from sources that include telephone interviews of managed care company representatives, research of state and government files, and mail and fax surveys by members of the Managed Care Information Center research project staff. All address and contact information has been verified.

The directory's cost ranges from $365 for the print edition, $595 for the directory in PDF on CD-ROM, to $1,995 for the database on CD-ROM and $2,700 for the online database.
