insurance exchanges are gaining currency as a way for employers to cut
health care costs, reduce their administrative burden and increase the
benefit choices they offer to covered employees. Multiple studies now
indicate that U.S. employers are increasingly looking at private
exchange options for both active and retired employees. Brokers,
consultants, payers and other intermediaries offer private exchanges,
but a mix of vested interests is at play among these service providers.
The second annual study by the Private Exchange Evaluation Collaborative (PEEC) affirms a continuing interest in private exchanges among employers. The national survey, based on the responses of 446 employers, reports heightened interest on the part of employers in private exchanges as a strategy for full-time active and retirees, but the potential transition must address a number of critical considerations. The survey is also the first national assessment that specifically captures the experience of early adopters of both private exchanges for active employees as well as retirees.
Please join the Midwest Business Group on Health's Larry Boress and PwC's Barbara Gniewek on Thursday, March 5th, 2015 at 1PM Eastern as they share PEEC research results and discuss New Research and Perspectives for 2015 with Employers and Private Exchanges.
