Strategic Business, Financial and Regulatory News of the Health Insurance Industry

Health Plan Week is a weekly 8-page newsletter written for busy health care executives to provide the business, financial and regulatory news of the health insurance industry that can help you make the most of opportunities and protect your organization’s bottom line. Each issue is packed with timely news and advice from experts on:

  • Whether the 20 million+ individuals who found coverage through the Affordable Care Act will be able to keep it under the Trump administration.
  • How insurers will manage soaring pharmacy costs … and whether government or industry efforts to restrain increases will work.
  • Whether carriers will be able to sell across state lines ... and what the impact would be.
  • Whether federal premium subsidies will disappear, and if so what will replace them.
  • How block grants or per capita caps could impact Medicaid managed care firms.
  • The future of bundled or global payment partnerships between insurers and providers.
  • Dynamic new employer benefit design trends and the priorities that are driving them.
  • New management tools that can contain the explosive growth in specialty drug costs.
  • Innovative trends in the use of narrow networks and P4P provider contracting.

“Whenever someone asks me what they should read to keep up with the industry, I tell them you can’t go wrong with Health Plan Week.”
– Walt Meyers, executive director, strategic market planning, Kaiser Permanente

Health Plan Week provides the intelligence you need to retain and grow group enrollment, stake out — and keep — a foothold in the individual market, develop value-based pay initiatives, and track new policy proposals from Washington ... and their impact.
