ASO Opportunities Value Visit 2017

Event Date: 5/17/2017 - 5/19/2017

Event Overview
ASO and Commercial Value Visit 2017

​Leverage your strengths in the fastest growing commercial market segment 

Community-based regional plans have historically struggled to gain market share in the ASO space.  The 100-500 life employer segment is seen as an especially large and growing and as of yet largely untapped opportunity. 

Larger multi-state employers are rethinking their traditional single administrator approach while national networks are creating new options.  Finally, more employers are considering direct-contracting with our owners.

These advancements raise the question, how can Alliance members get our share of the growing business and what role do we play in the evolving market?  It takes rethinking our marketing, operations, network contracting and care management strategies.

  • Audio: AHCA vs. ACA & How We Should Respond
  • Repeal and replace, the ACA, the AHCA - what does it all mean? How does it affect us? Should we care? Should we respond? In the case of healthcare regulation and legislation, every answer produces two more questions. We will discuss whether AHCA and "healthcare" reform (or is it "health insurance" reform?) really impact the self-funded industry, and if so, how? We will ask whether anyone is actually addressing the cost of care, and what changes are more likely to occur than not; as well as how those changes might impact our benefit plans and our industry as a whole.
