Revenue growth for the quarter was driven by an increase in the Company's claims management services.  The market continues to be receptive to CorVel's immediate intervention model which includes 24/7 nurse triage and telehealth services offering injured workers immediate access to quality care.

The Company's managed care solutions, which includes Network Solutions for the wholesale payor market, also had increased revenues driven by the Company's value-added performance for clients, which includes a new interface, the CareMC EdgeSM.  Payors face increasing pressure to help contain inflating medical costs which has increased interest in the Company's medical review and provider management services.

The Company is continuing its strategy of long term investments in systems infrastructure and information technology with the ongoing development of its claims management platform,, which now includes enterprise wide features such as web services and single sign on authentication. CareMC represents the next generation of on-demand information processing solutions for risk management. The Company is committed to helping claims professionals work together more easily and productively with employers to help injured employees return to the workplace sooner.
