The managed care market faces a series of challenges in 2005 that may change the face of the industry and therefore impact health providers and payors.
But what are the most challenging issues in the year ahead?
"Forecast: Whats Ahead For Managed Care In 2005" a new executive-level tele-briefing was held Thursday, Jan. 27, 2005.
The health costs escalation issue wont go away. Health plans are bringing consumer driven health plan products to market; the federal government cleared the way for health savings accounts, and plans are partnering with financial institutions to be able to market HSAs. Physicians, fed-up, are suing the major payors for equitable reimbursement; meanwhile the MCOs are waving bonuses at providers to increase quality and patient satisfaction. Finally, all of these developments are unfolding as the move toward electronic health technology is shaping the provider-patient-payor dynamic.
Pick your favorite issue and there are more questions than answers. Our surveys of health and managed care executives rank the health costs issue as the top problem. Everything else may be an attempt to calm the cost beast.
Thats why "Forecast: Whats Ahead For Managed Care In 2005" was organized. To help bring focus and maybe some clarity to the multiple forces shaping the health and managed care industry as we enter the mid-point in this first decade of the century.
