Preparing for exchanges: Key insights from states to help payers plan and operationalize
September 27, 2012
2:00 - 3:30 pm
Health Benefit Exchanges (HBX), both public and private, present a new set of opportunities that health plans will need to evaluate. The goals of HBX initiatives, to improve access to insurance and improve the quality of coverage while driving down price, are challenging to achieve under current operating models. Payers need to review and revise their operational processes and IT infrastructure to successfully operate on exchanges.
Only qualified health insurance plans will be allowed to offer coverage through state exchanges and must provide actuarially determined benefits that reflect state specific essential health benefits. As rules and restrictions vary from state to state, health plans will need to carefully evaluate the steps needed to prepare to sell in the markets they operate.
KPMG Healthcare has helped over 10 states in their HBX efforts and has created a payer target operating model that can help define effective ways to integrate key functions with the exchange. Join us from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 27 as KPMG Healthcare lead this powerful discussion based on their work to date.
