RegQuest Unveils Utilization Management Regulatory & Market Trends: 2016 Annual Report

March 3, 2016

After identifying a gap in the availability of information focusing on utilization management (UM) regulation and market trends, RegQuest formed a research team to focus on creating a comprehensive, user-friendly guide on the subject . In early February, the Utilization Management Regulatory & Market Trends: 2016 Annual Report, representing the first update on this topic in over a decade was released.

The report provides a comprehensive review of the origins of UM, where it stands today, and where it will head in the future. The study is based on a detailed regulatory survey, academic research and expert interviews. It is a must-read for anyone who is interested in better understanding how the U.S. health care system pays for health insurance in practice.

In addition to reviewing the scope of utilization management, the report covers litigation trends and provides information on the next generation of medical management practices, such as incorporating evidence-based medicine and mental health parity requirements.

Although the report is only available to subscribers of RegQuest’s UM module, a complimentary primer is available. To check it out, please click here.

In addition to the UM Trend Report, you will also have access to our database of UM state laws and regulations, quick-reference tables and real-time updates regarding changes to legislation.
