Health Plans

New strategies for a new business model.

Complying with the Affordable Care Act mandates is only one of the reasons health plans need to rethink, retool and realign. Reform has far-reaching effects, such as the decline of fee-for-service care and an upsurge in the government’s role as a payor. Other forces include the new consumerism and the reign of analytics. And members will likely seek affordability more than before.

Health plans face more than an adjustment. They are playing a new role in helping new populations get new kinds of care in new ways. Instead of just changing practices, they may have to embrace new value propositions. Does this mean doing business differently? More like embarking on a different business entirely. Which of the capabilities you’ve already built will remain vital? What new ones will you have to develop? There’s hard work ahead, but also opportunity.

More Thinking forward

  • The great consolidation: The potential for rapid consolidation of health systems

Executives should consider defining how their hospitals will survive: Should they acquire? Differentiate? Seek other relationship types? Staying the course is no longer an option.
  • Retail reigns in health care: The rise of consumer power and its organization & workforce implications
    Is your organization and workforce ready to meet the demands of “retail health care”? Deloitte’s health plans paper discusses the emerging trends of the health care retail environment and how to align your organization and workforce to excel in this new market.

    Looking ahead to the next open enrollment season, how can health plans and government agencies entice young people to participate? According to Deloitte’s 2014 Survey of Young Adults and Health Insurance, the answer may lie in information, affordability, and value.
  • Good for what ails us: The disruptive rise of value-based care
    The health care industry is ripe for disruptive innovation as systemic challenges continue to face the industry and stakeholders demand increased value. Health care stakeholders will need to change traditional delivery and payment models or risk survival.
