Five healthcare markets in the nation had HMO penetration rates of more than 70% last year, according to a recent analysis by InterSutdy Publications of St. St. Paul, Minn. Four of these five markets are in Northern California and the fifth is in Connecticut. And HMOs had almost 70% of the health insurance business in Jackson, Tenn., and Rochester, N.Y. Overall HMO market penetration declined in 2000 as compared with 1999. The trend affected large, medium and small metropolitan markets.
