Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
Leading health business information publisher Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) is pleased to announce the release of AIS’s Directory of Health Plans: 2014, the latest edition of the most comprehensive resource available on the U.S. health plan market. Available as a printed book containing the full directory and an “Executive Summary” of enrollment trends in quick-view tables and charts, as well as a CD database version with enrollment and market data in three different file formats, and verified contact names in mailing lists, the 2014 edition contains information for health plans and primary care preferred provider networks operating in the U.S. as of year-end 2013.
To produce the Directory, AIS’s on-staff researchers personally interview or survey a knowledgeable person at each health plan — including subsidiaries and parent companies — to get a clear picture of product offerings, contracts and markets, ensuring that each covered life is counted only once, and is categorized by plan models that are defined in a consistent and meaningful manner which reflect the current industry. By maintaining impeccable research standards and strict methodology through ten annual editions, AIS’s health plan data offers true year-over-year comparisons and extremely accurate and sensitive insight into developing trends. And, for the eleventh year in a row, America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) — the national trade association representing health plans — has selected AIS’s Directory of Health Plans as the official directory resource.
New this year, the Directory includes brand-new chapters on Medicare Part D (PDP) enrollment, health insurance exchange participation in both public and private exchanges, accountable care organizations (ACOs), and new start-up health plans (including CO-OPs), as well as updated and expanded data for local-level and subsidiary unit breakdowns, commercial risk enrollment broken down into individual/small group/large group enrollment, and more key executive contacts than ever before — with three new job functions: human resources, government relations and Medicare operations.
Also new this year, CD database purchasers get access to a dedicated customer support website, designed to help users adjust to changes made to the 2014 edition and learn how the new structure correlates with previous editions. CD database purchasers also receive a copy of the printed book. Multi-user licenses for the CD are also available.
