ABOUT THE BOOK
New advances in employer-sponsored benefits are not only revolutionizing the way to attract and retain employees - they also bring much-needed innovation to the U.S. health care system.
Rather than relying on an outdated, “one-size-fits-all” model, employers are taking advantage of a benefits solution that empowers their employees to take a 360-degree view of their benefits needs. A private exchange - also known as online benefits marketplace - is a consumer-centric model. It gives employees the ability to buy health and other benefits through an online “store,” typically using money allocated by their employer.
Leveraging expert insights from Barbara Gniewek (PwC), Rhonda Marcucci (Gruppo Marcucci/Arthur J. Gallagher & Co), Mark Hall (Professor, Wake Forest University, Christopher E. Condeluci (ACA Policy Expert), and more, Employee Benefits and the New Health Care Landscape is the first book of its kind to illuminate the evolution of private exchanges to help readers understand:
- How the system got to be such a mess
- How insurance brokers, employers and employees all have a role to play
- How we can create a better employer-sponsored benefit system for all
