Vice President Sheri Sellmeyer and Principal Director Jane DuBose are available to discuss the implications of State Exchanges across the healthcare landscape. Leveraging Decision Resources Group's proprietary data and analysis, Ms. Sellmeyer and Ms. DuBose can speak to the short- and long-term effects of the Exchanges, as well as providing market-by-market insight on Healthcare Reform's evolution.

Ms. Sellmeyer is available to discuss:

  • How the pace of enrollment in the exchanges will vary by state, depending on the politics and how each state sells the new marketplaces
  • What premium rates are looking like on the exchanges—including the contrast between more and less expensive states—and what rates will be offered in some of the new nonprofit cooperatives
  • How CDHPs—which have already enjoyed a breakout year—are an overlooked trend in MCO offerings for exchanges, and what that will mean for consumers
    • Ms. Sellmeyer has co-written an Executive Briefing on the subject, which can be found here

Ms. DuBose is available to discuss:

  • What the latest medical and pharmacy benefit management trends are, how these fit into Healthcare Reform and the opening of the Exchanges—and what they will mean for companies doing business in the healthcare industry
  • How narrow-network plan designs have developed around the upcoming exchanges as MCOs work to differentiate themselves and compete in a more regulated landscape
  • How employer groups have shifted into private exchanges through defined contribution programs
