Renew your subscription to Health Plan Week for timely news and analysis of the dynamic proposals ahead from President Trump and the Republican Congress.

Even with Republicans’ initial health reform bill dead, enormous change still lies ahead for health insurers that face an increasingly turbulent individual market, continued calls to dramatically change Medicaid funding and continual hikes in drug prices.

When you renew your subscription to Health Plan Week, you’ll have a constant stream of timely news and insightful strategies 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 the 21st Century Cures Act will be a shot in the arm for private exchanges.
  • 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.
