Health insurance providers strive to present their products as the ideal option for the beneficiaries in terms of coverage, affordability, and data accuracy. There are multiple factors that affect a health insurance provider’s ability to achieve better member satisfaction. Results from a recent survey conducted by a research firm in San Francisco across 73 health insurance provider executives stated that while member satisfaction was their primary goal, regulatory compliance, provider relations, and cost lowering were some of the key challenges in today’s market.
Compliance management for health insurance providers is complex, as most functions have their unique set of regulatory policies, plus data collection and management is often dependent on alignment with external players. Amidst increasing expectation from CMS to improve patient experience and preparing for the next audit, can health insurance providers keep the focus to manage overall compliance across all functions?
This webinar will discuss challenges and approaches for navigating three core compliance areas for the health insurance providers:
