READY TO LAUNCH: THE RAPID ACCELERATION OF HEALTH INSURANCE EXCHANGES AS AN EMPLOYER-BASED HEALTH BENEFITS SOLUTION

John Barkett, Director, Health Policy Affairs, EXTEND HEALTH, A TOWERS WATSON COMPANY

Private health insurance exchanges have exploded onto the employer-based health benefits landscape.  While all exchanges offer the prospect of reduced administrative burden, employee choice, and cost containment, no one solution looks alike.  Public exchanges that come online in 2014 only add to the diversity of exchange offerings available to employers.  This presentation will organize the exchange marketplace for employers, highlight the benefits and risks of the various models, and offer a historical perspective showing when it comes to adopting an exchange solution, employers should be sure to "measure twice, cut once."
