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

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthLeaders-InterStudy, the leading provider of managed care market intelligence, reports that although many of the largest Blue Cross and Blue Shield-branded managed care organizations collectively lost more than half a million members between January 2008 and July 2008, Blue Shield of California bucks this trend.

HealthLeaders-InterStudy had previously issued a press release indicating that Blue Shield of California was losing lives in the first half of 2008, but in fact, Blue Shield of California gained almost 70,000 lives based on the time period January 2008 to July 2008. HealthLeaders-InterStudy regrets the error and is available to reporters to discuss Blue Shield of California's enrollment increase.

Enrollment data in Managed Market Surveyor-Rx describes plan and funding type including commercial lives (HMO, PPO, consumer-driven), Medicaid/Medicare and fully/self-insured.
