    Private Exchanges and Pet Insurance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing private health insurance exchanges, pet insurance and more with special guests from Accenture and Hartville Pet Insurance Group.


    For the first segment on today's program, Scott Brown, Private Exchange Offering Lead at Accenture, will be joining the program to discuss the firm's latest private exchange research. Accenture estimates enrollment in private health insurance exchanges doubled to six million individuals for the 2015 plan year. The company projects hypergrowth will continue through 2018, as a number of factors inhibiting early growth will dissipate, while several accelerators will spur further adoption. These factors, combined with the employer’s desire to meet consumers’ demand for choice and flexibility in a retail-like shopping experience, will lead to 40 million members on private exchanges by 2018.


    The second guest on this week's program will be JoAnne Novak, AVP Business Development at Hartville Pet Insurance Group, providers of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.  As one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the U.S., Hartville has committed itself to helping more pet parents have access to reliable and affordable pet insurance plans. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet, and last year, over $15 billion was spent on veterinary care. In this segment, JoAnne will discuss what’s driving the increasing demand for pet health insurance as a voluntary benefit as well as what makes pet insurance relevant for the workforce in connection with health care consumerism and private exchanges.

    Health Care Payments, Life Insurance and Health Incentives

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, the hosts welcome two special guests to the program for a discussion on health care payments, health engagement, life insurance, health incentives and more.


    The first guest on the program will be Vineet Gulati, chief executive officer of HealthExpense. Similar to the shift from pension plans to individual retirement accounts years ago, employers are switching from defined benefit to a defined contribution that their employees control. Therefore, the employee-consumer today has to make more health insurance and health care purchasing decisions. This shift has been rapid, and consumers need to learn very quickly how to use vehicles like HSAs, FSAs and HRAs to cope with this expense-shift. In this interview, Vineet and the hosts will discuss what problems this shift is causing across the health care ecosystem and the innovations that are emerging to deal with these changes.


    For the second segment on the show, the hosts will talk with Tal Gilbert, senior vice president of marketing and innovation for The Vitality Group. Tal and the hosts will be discussing an innovative new solution that brings together life insurance and wellness incentives. John Hancock Insurance recently launched a new approach to life insurance in the U.S. that rewards people for healthy living. Developed through an exclusive, first-ever life insurance partnership with The Vitality Group, the new solution integrates life insurance with a comprehensive healthy living program.
