  • Administrative activities carried out by health insurance providers, including medical management and fraud prevention, to improve the health care experience for consumers;
  • Initiatives and collaborations through which health insurance providers are working to simplify administrative burdens for hospitals and clinicians; and
  • Our commitment to working with other stakeholders and policymakers to address challenges and barriers to administrative simplifications that provide value to patients.
