Commercial Medical and Pharmacy Benefit Enrollment Down in New York

HealthLeaders-InterStudy's Managed Market Surveyor-Rx Evaluates How Medical and Pharmacy Lives are Covered at National, State and MSA Levels

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthLeaders-InterStudy, the leading provider of managed care market intelligence, reports that medical and pharmacy benefit enrollment in New York state declined between July 2008 and January 2009. According to data available in the newest release of Managed Market Surveyor-Rx, medical benefit enrollment declined 2.7 percent throughout the state (approximately 340,000 lives), while pharmacy benefit enrollment declined 3.6 percent (approximately 335,000 lives).

"The economy plays a large role in the enrollment declines seen in New York, particularly as the number of unemployed in the state nearly doubled in 2008," said Rebecca Waller, senior health plan analyst with HealthLeaders-InterStudy. "Overall, enrollment has decreased in New York at a higher rate than most other states."

In some states, insurers are able to retain some business lost through layoffs and business closures with sales to the individual market, but that sector is less of a factor in New York. State rules regarding medical underwriting make prices for individual designs relatively high.

The shifts seen in the New York market are just one example of the data available in Managed Market Surveyor-Rx.

"Managed Market Surveyor-Rx allows users to identify managed care enrollment trends across plans, plan type and geography to better inform resource deployment," said Russell Workman, principal director of data operations for HealthLeaders-InterStudy. "For pharmaceutical companies contracting with plans operating in New York, and throughout the country, our database provides a comprehensive assessment of a plan's market share by metropolitan statistical area (MSA) and its capacity in that market."
