Health Care Marketplaces
In the current environment, there are many "marketplaces" for health care: through employers, ACA state marketplaces, the FEHB program, state employee programs, and, increasingly, in the TRICARE Program. We have in depth knowledge of what makes a health care marketplace work. From the customer perspective, this includes choice of health plans, transparency, and portability. From the market sponsor perspective, this includes state-of-the-art choice architecture, ready access to enrollment data, and the ability to communicate easily and confidently with enrollees. Through our experiences with ACA marketplaces, the FEHB program, and TRICARE, we can assist clients in multiple ways.
Addressing Social Risk Factors
It is well documented that social risk factors such as substandard housing, lack of transportation, low income, and poor access to healthy foods affect health outcomes to a greater degree than medical care. Based on our with Medicaid programs and internationally, we have expertise in health risk assessment, innovative partnerships to address social determinants of health, and financing mechanisms to support social interventions.
