Managed care expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds as a physician, legal nurse consultant, specialized medical expert, and/or in the heath insurance industry. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine, managed care programs are:

Health insurance plans intended to reduce unnecessary health care costs through a variety of mechanisms, including: economic incentives for physicians and patients to select less costly forms of care; programs for reviewing the medical necessity of specific services; increased beneficiary cost sharing; controls on inpatient admissions and lengths of stay; the establishment of cost-sharing incentives for outpatient surgery; selective contracting with health care providers; and the intensive management of high-cost health care cases. The programs may be provided in a variety of settings, such as health maintenance organizations and preferred provider organizations.

Litigation support matters requiring a managed care expert witness often involve medical malpractice cases, personal injury, managed care health plan disputes, standards of care, pain management, or medical billing. Expert witness services by a subject matter expert in managed care could include dispute resolution, an expert report, an expert opinion, deposition testimony and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, legal counsel may request an expert with prior expert testimony experience. The expertise of a managed care expert witness will provide credibility to enable the jury to consider the evidence with the weight it deserves.
