Providers & Health Insurance Exchanges:  Contracting and other implications for the new marketplace
In preparation for the establishment of the Health Benefit Exchanges, which become effective January 1, 2014, health plans will be designing and introducing new products that will serve both individuals and small employers. To support these new products, the health plans will need to contract for the required provider network over the course of 2013 to be prepared for the open enrollment period beginning October 1, 2013. The Exchanges are intended to increase competition and choice, fostering transparency for comparing price, coverage and quality.

For provider organizations, the Exchanges will materially impact the managed care landscape and their response to these changes can have significant implications for their future reimbursement terms and potentially access to patients. Providers should be preparing for these changes by strategically evaluating their options to participate in each of the Exchange products emerging in their market. There are key financial and operational considerations that need to be evaluated in order to determine what is best for your organization and what terms will be acceptable for participation.

With increasing payor activity in the market, providers will be facing some difficult decisions over the next few months. There are multiple strategies to consider along with various scenarios in terms of the volume and financial impact of exchange patients.
Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:
  1. Review the legislative background and structural models for the state Health Exchanges and the implications associated with each.
  2. Understand how to evaluate the health plan activity in your state and market.
  3. Discuss how best to establish market competitive rates and contract terms.

  5. Determine the best approach for structuring the managed care contracts and the key language considerations.
  6. Evaluate potential shifts in payor mix associated with expanded coverage and the introduction of tiered and narrow network products.
  7. Prepare your organization in terms of the operational impact.
