Boston, June 9, 2016 – U.S. commercial health plans remain committed to the private sector, despite a lack of both profitability and national employers drawn to private exchanges. Plans have a solid distribution strategy in place, and they can thank the Affordable Care Act for early demand. But is it time to sever those ACA ties and refocus private exchanges as a vital cog for employers taking healthcare consumerism to the next level and energizing benefits administration?
This research provides commercial health plans and their private exchange partners insight into market trends and resulting go-to-market best practices, creating clarity on game-changing private exchange vendors and vendors best suited as acquisition targets. It is based on a 2016 Aite Group online survey of managers or senior executives at commercial health plans, brokers, consultants, financial institutions, and private exchange vendors.
