Boston, September 17, 2014 – Private exchanges are expanding their value beyond digital enrollment via defined contribution by aggregating services once provided by other stakeholders. Private exchanges provide a rich set of front-end tools, allowing employees to compare, buy, and enroll healthcare products, and most provide an equally deep set of back-end capabilities for employers. If private exchange vendors get service aggregation right, their platforms will create a unique revenue opportunity for carriers, brokers, and product partners in the coveted group market. But if they get it wrong, they'll offer just another portal with a unique user ID and password.
