Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Atlantic Information Services, Inc., publisher of Inside Health Insurance Exchanges and Health Plan Week, is pleased to announce the full agenda for its upcoming virtual conference “Making Private Exchanges Work for Insurers.” Led by many of the nation’s private exchange experts, including top industry consultants, lawyers working in the health care sector and Wall Street analysts, the Feb. 25 program will offer details of how private exchanges work, which models are most successful at gaining members, and the pros and cons for insurers of taking part in nonproprietary exchanges versus building their own.
The virtual conference’s four sessions are:
11:00 – 12:30: “The Business Model for Insurers” — A trio of health insurance market analysts from Moody’s Investors Service and Booz & Company will explain the business model for private exchanges and the impact to insurers by either operating their own proprietary exchanges or selling products on existing marketplaces. They will address the overall state of play for the payer, benefit consultant and employer, and describe the value proposition by consumer segment, projections of market size and payer reactions to the multicarrier private exchange and single-carrier model.
- 1:00 – 2:00: “Employer Demands: Assessing and Strategizing the Market for Private Exchanges” — Three industry experts will explore how defined contribution is playing into employer decision making and where this trend is heading in 2014.
- 2:15 – 3:15: “Existing Private Exchanges: Current Status and Future Outlook” — Experienced PwC consultants will conduct a thorough review of the current inventory of private exchanges, which exchange models are attracting the most business and the results of the 2014 open-enrollment season. The session also will delve into which products are most attractive on private exchanges, which entities may become active in the private exchange space beyond insurers and benefits consultants, and what the near-term outlook is for the growth of private exchanges.
- 3:30 – 5:00: “How to Build Your Own Private Exchange” — A panel of leading actuaries, employee benefit experts and health insurance company insiders will provide practical advice and a checklist of things to watch out for in building a private exchange. Experts from the business and consumer sides will explain how to select the right vendors, which key features and functionalities should be a part of the exchange design, how best to create an attractive product mix that meets the needs of diverse employee populations, and how to install.
Additionally, each session will conclude with generous time allocated to answering individual questions.
