InterStudy Publications, a division of Decision Resources, announces the release of its Competitive Edge Regional Market Analysis Spring 2004, which finds that, despite a continuing trend of HMO total enrollment loss at a national level, more than 25% of metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) experienced a net gain in HMO enrollment between July 1, 2001 and July 1, 2003.

"During this time frame, 41.3% of small MSAs (defined as having a population of fewer than 250,000) experienced growth in HMO enrollment," said Rebecca Waller, project manager for InterStudy Publications. "In contrast, only 22% of large markets experienced a gain in HMO enrollment."
