Earlier this month, Health Exchange Alert interviewed CEO John Fiacco regarding the federal government’s decision to partner with ConnectedHealth in offering Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) through the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace (FFM).
The article highlights why the government’s decision to leverage private-sector technology is a step in the right direction for healthcare consumers. It also examines how ConnectedHealth will maintain its focus of helping employers design and implement successful benefit strategies based on their goals, as the opportunities for cost control and increasing employee choice expand.
[ConnectedHealth’s] current private exchange makes it so that employers aren’t picking a single plan for everyone, and employees have more choice.
There’s an opportunity for the employer to “get out of the middle of providing health insurance” with the new exchange landscape, ConnectedHealth CEO and Co-Founder John Fiacco tells Health Exchange Alert. “I think that’s a good thing,” he adds.
