Schooner Strategies is excited to launch RegQuest™, a new resource that will provide health plans, regulators and others with invaluable information regarding current regulations and laws.
The Schooner team is actively working on putting the finishing touches on the ReqQuest website, which is scheduled to go live later this month. The initial launch will feature state and federal regulations regarding the practice of utilization management (UM). Over the past year, Schooner has partnered with EBG Advisors to update this detailed survey of UM requirements, which was last published in 2005. Each state will have its own section, featuring information on the scope, regulatory contact information, licensure requirements, program requirements, reviewer qualifications, appeals process and other relevant information.
“We are extremely excited to introduce this informative resource into the marketplace,” said Garry Carneal, JD, MA, President and CEO of Schooner Strategies. “Our hope is to provide easy to understand summaries of key medical management regulations covering appeals and grievance procedures, among other topics.”
Throughout the rest of 2015, additional regulatory areas will be added onto the site beyond utilization management, including:
- External/independent review
- Administrative appeals/grievance procedures
- Case management
- Other specialty programs
