Competition remains strong among the Indianapolis market’s health systems, which continue to construct care sites to replace aging facilities, reach new patients, or offer more sophisticated specialty services. Cancer care and behavioral health services, in particular, will see growth, thanks to new related care sites that have opened or will open in 2020. As a result, health system employment of the market’s physicians will increase as they look for more providers to staff these new facilities. Local heavyweight Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Indiana remains in firm control of the market’s insurance sector, which will not change anytime soon, but there is potential for innovation, including Suburban Health Organization’s new narrow network product offered directly to employers and the sale of short-term health plans.
