New Year, New Benefits Strategy: The Role of Private Exchanges

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has led many employers like you to fundamentally reconsider every element of workforce management. You may be exploring new models for administering health benefits to your employees and looking for innovative ways to help reduce the cost of your health care plans – and one of those methods may be using a Private Exchange.

Employers may gravitate to Private Exchanges for many reasons: you want to ‘outsource’ to experts the time consuming and expensive annual process of selecting and pricing benefits carriers and plans and obtain assistance with ACA regulatory compliance in an increasingly complicated environment. Or, you may want to help your employees become more value-conscious healthcare buyers.

But exactly what are Private Exchanges? And how do you know what to look for when selecting one? What are the benefits of a Private Exchange and how can you determine if it would be the right approach for your business?

To help you understand the role Private Exchanges can play in your overall benefits strategy, listen to our latest webinar, New Year, New Benefits Strategy: The Role of Private Exchanges.
