Business News and Strategies on the Impact of Reform on Insurers, Employers and Pharma

With health reform now moving into the final implementation stage, it is more important than ever to get reliable answers to questions that will soon transform your business and bottom line. Among them:

  • How will the individual market be transformed by the influx of millions of new enrollees and hundreds of billions of premium dollars onto the insurance exchanges?
  • How will group markets respond as employers feel pressure to move their employees to the exchanges?
  • How will the industry be impacted by implementation of the massive CMS-funded integrated care initiatives for Medicare-Medicaid dual eligibles?
  • What are health plans doing to prepare their information technology systems to accept and process the complex new eligibility and billing data that will soon be coming their way?
  • How much will exchange plan premiums be driven up as a result of the “essential health benefits” requirement that plans in the exchanges offer at least the same number of drugs in each therapeutic class as the benchmark plan chosen by the state?
  • How will your bottom line be hit by underwriting changes such as guaranteed issue and the end of gender rating, benefit caps and pre-existing condition exclusions?
  • How are health plans faring under the “3R” risk-modification programs that start in 2014 to limit adverse selection in exchanges?

To be a winner under reform, you will need targeted information to formulate strategies that limit your risks and maximize your opportunities. AIS’s Health Reform Week will provide reliable answers to a slew of questions that will transform your business and your bottom line. It is designed to inform savvy business leaders in health care of what reform means to them ... and how to take advantage of new opportunities ahead.
