You’ll read in-depth accounts of health plans’ competitive strategies in public and private exchanges, new reimbursement strategies such as value-based care and bundled payments, and pharmacy benefit cost containment strategies — especially as new hepatitis C treatments and biosimilars come to market.
  • Market Impact. Insurers are making inroads into the individual market, by adapting products and marketing strategies as the industry becomes more consumer-driven.
  • Industry Innovations. Recently, the industry has seen a slew of innovative new tactics — new market entrants from nontraditional health care companies, venture capital investments from insurers, a growing use of population health data in providing patient care … and more.
