Listen to this fast-paced, fact-based program by a team of consultants from PwC with extensive experience in the private exchange sector. You’ll get reliable answers to these and other bottom-line questions:

  • Who are the main private exchange players today? Who is expected to increase (or reduce) their participation? What new players are expected to enter the market?
  • What do employers want from private exchanges? How can insurers help them achieve their cost and employee engagement goals most effectively?
  • Which private exchange models are attracting the most business? Which products are selling the best?
  • What are the key differences among the various private exchange models? Which elements are most attractive to employers?
  • What does the data show on how newly empowered exchange enrollees shop for coverage?
  • When will the private exchange market top out? Which exchanges are likely to survive? What is the coming consolidation expected to look like?
