On this week's show, host Doug Field talks with guests from Fifth Third Bank and Fidelity Health Marketplace.
The first guest is Mark Robich, vice president and consumer-directed health care lead at Fifth Third Bank. In this interview, Mark will talk about Fifth Third Bank's recently introduced Consumer-Directed Health Care Solution and how this new solution makes it easier for business customers to administer high deductible health plans paired with tax-advantaged financial accounts, such as HSAs, FSAs and HRAs. Fifth Third joined Chard Snyder along with technology platform provider WEX Health to deliver a seamless experience and create one-stop shopping for employers.
The second guest on the program is Joe Laurin, president of Fidelity Health Marketplace. In today's interview, starting at 30 minutes, Joe will talk about trends around private health exchanges and give his thoughts on the funding models used by some of these exchanges. He will also touch on the news about some national insurance companies pulling out of the public exchanges and on how that impacts people’s perception of private health exchanges.
