What will be the key policy and operational issues for those serving the Individual and Small-Group markets? Join us in March as thought leaders from throughout the health care industry share where we are and what’s needed next to succeed in these important markets.
You’ll leave with innovative ideas from states, what’s next for small groups, how to best tackle affordability and access, and more.
You won’t want to miss a remarkable range of speakers, including:
In his opening session, Peter will give perspectives on the individual market, future opportunities and challenges for health plans and the consumers they serve as they prepare for the 2019 open enrollment. He will also touch on what Covered California is doing to promote access to high-value, high-quality care for all Americans and what lessons can be applied nationally.
Together, you’ll also explore other intriguing sessions, such as:
The National Conference on the Individual and Small-Group Markets brings together the experts, ideas, and tactics that can help you make key operational decisions for the people and markets you serve.
Located immediately following AHIP’s National Health Policy Conference (March 7-8), combine both conferences with one trip.
Policymakers are currently considering proposals to strengthen insurance markets and risk pools by establishing a reinsurance program or similar market-stabilizing mechanism. Such programs work by reimbursing health insurance providers a portion of the medical costs associated with providing coverage and care to high-cost and high-risk individuals. In this session, speakers will share their perspective and insights about federal and state experiences with reinsurance programs and examine program design and policy considerations.
Pending litigation will have a significant impact on the commercial insurance market including the individual and small group markets over the next year. As you plan for the upcoming year, learn about the opportunities and challenges for health insurance providers. In this session, speakers will share their perspectives on several current cases covering cost-sharing reductions, risk corridors payments, contraceptive coverage and non-discrimination rules among many others.
Having grown up with the Internet and a wealth of information at their fingertips, many millennials approach health care with different expectations and skill sets than previous generations. In this general session, speakers will discuss how millennials are approaching their health benefit decisions respective to the individual market, and how their behavior and engagement will influence the future of open enrollment and benefit design.
Health plans have an enormous opportunity to help small businesses protect their bottom-line, while ensuring that their employees have easy access to personalized, cost-effective coverage. And their best partner in achieving these goals? Brokers. In this session, participants will learn why brokers hold the key to a carrier’s profitability in the small group arena, and how to improve that relationship (and their workflows) in 2018.
In this session, attendees will learn how to design and execute a successful consumer engagement strategy (including acquisition, welcome, and engagement) using an integrated, omnichannel approach. Speakers will also present a case study on how one health plan became more effective in acquiring and retaining members by integrating their marketing, sales and engagement efforts.
Leading policy experts discuss regulatory actions that are sending mixed signals, creating challenges for consumers and insurers in the individual and small group markets, and affecting market stability. You’ll hear recent health policy research and insights on how to navigate the challenging, changing environment. Association Health Plans (AHPs), 1332 waivers, short-term limited duration medical policies, and the 2019 Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters will be among the issues discussed.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) risk-adjustment program plays an important role in promoting market stability and affordability in both the individual and small-group health insurance markets. As a permanent feature of the ACA, the risk-adjustment program works by compensating health insurance providers that disproportionately enroll higher-cost and higher-risk individuals through payment transfers from plans that disproportionately enroll lower-risk individuals. By promoting a level-playing field among competing health plans and facilitating fair competition based on the quality and efficiency of care delivery, this risk-adjustment program helps support the goals of market stability and affordability for all consumers. In this session, the speaker will share his perspective and insights about the results of the risk-adjustment program and assess potential policy changes and market forces that may impact the program in future years.
