The most significant change in U.S. health care in 50 years has begun. Get timely news and strategic insights to make sure you have the tools you need to succeed in the new marketplaces.

Despite the troubled rollout last fall, state-operated and federally facilitated exchanges will enroll millions of previously uninsured people in 2014. At stake is an estimated $23 billion in federal premium subsidies.

And while those public exchanges have the potential to revolutionize the way insurance coverage is purchased by individuals, even bigger change is expected to come from private exchanges operated by national employee benefit firms (e.g., Aon Hewitt, Mercer, Towers Watson and Buck) brokerage firms, chambers of commerce and by health insurers themselves.

Timely News and Strategies for Doing Business on Federal, State and Private Exchanges

Both private and public exchanges offer an unprecedented growth opportunity for health insurers. The rules for public exchanges, however, continue to change, and can vary substantially from state to state. And the future of private exchanges depends on their ability to keep coverage costs in check by convincing employers to move to a defined-contribution strategy.

When you subscribe to Inside Health Insurance Exchanges you'll receive a constant flow of market intelligence and answers to these and other big-dollar questions:

  • What do carriers need to know when pricing their exchange-based plans for 2015? At most, carriers will have just three months of claims history by the time they file their 2015 rates in April.
  • How will the ACA’s transitional risk-corridor program compensate carriers if they opt to extend previously canceled policies? Will the government be able to absorb all potential losses incurred by insurance companies?
  • Will exchanges mean more members and bigger profits? While the combination of private and state exchanges will mean new distribution channels for insurers, a shift among employers toward defined-contribution benefits could have a big impact on profitability for larger insurers.
  • What percentage of employers will stop paying for employee health benefits and move workers to the exchanges? Plan sponsors have complex calculations to make in determining whether to contribute to workers’ exchange premiums and assessing the impact on recruitment and retention.
  • Are employers ready for private exchanges? A recent survey indicates that nearly 30% of large employers (i.e., 5,000 or more employees) are considering offering benefits through a private exchange in the future. And a financial services firm, predicts 35 million or more active employees will choose coverage through a private exchange by 2018.
  • How many insurers will launch their own exchanges in 2014? Along with participating in several mulit-carrier exchanges, Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini indicated his company was getting ready to launch its own “proprietary” private exchanges.
  • Will HHS allow more states to use Medicaid dollars to expand exchange eligibility?
