Share Article

Executives from Independence Blue Cross and Gorman Health Group will walk through an operational readiness checklist for health plans before the Oct. 1 health insurance exchange open enrollment date in an upcoming co-hosted webinar from Atlantic Information Services and Gorman Health Group.

Less than 100 days from the launch of health insurance exchanges, health insurers should prioritize their to-do list based on operational risk. In an upcoming Aug. 13 co-hosted webinar from Atlantic Information Services and Gorman Health Group (GHG) -- “Exchange Operational Readiness Check: Is Your Health Plan Ready?” -- a veteran insurance executive and a nationally respected health care consultant will detail practical steps insurers must take to be ready for open enrollment in the new health care marketplaces.

Aaron Eaton, chief development officer at GHG, and John Janney, senior vice president of health care reform implementation and transformation at Independence Blue Cross, walk through an operational readiness checklist for health plan executives, employee benefits specialists, consulting firms and third-party administrators before the Oct. 1 open enrollment date. In 60 minutes of presentations followed by 30 minutes devoted to individual questions, participants will get valuable insights on key issues such as:

  • How can plans find and reach new exchange customers — and grab their attention quickly?
  • How can plans develop a multipronged strategy to continually train, update and inform employees?
  • How quickly and accurately can a risk-adjustment system identify sicker patients — and pass them onto care management and disease management operations?
  • How can plans make sure their system will identify discrepancies in enrollment and premium payments before they cause downstream problems across the organization?
  • Are plans prepared to manage and reconcile data for the Cost Sharing Reduction program?
  • How can plans develop a comprehensive onboarding process that will adequately prepare front-line sales forces?
  • What other pitfalls should plans be watching for as Oct. 1 approaches?
