Retail Health and the Future of Health Insurance
I invite you to attend a webinar I will present this week on The Implications of Retail Health and The Future of Health Insurance on Tuesday, January 8, 2013, from 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM ET.
Retail health— from convenient care clinics in drugstores to the emerging insurance exchanges mandated by healthcare reform—has the potential to reshape the provider and payer markets. Health plans are taking a position by investing in technology, assisting members with price and quality transparency, and developing innovative care networks that broaden member access.
This webinar, in brief, is about how consumer-directed healthcare empowers “shoppers” by providing them with information about price and treatment options so that they can pursue cost-saving opportunities. As a result, a growing number of managed care organizations are adding retail health stores and clinics within their networks. Consumers want convenience in their health care options, which is right in line with retail channels.
