Still mired in double-digit unemployment, the Louisville area is seeing its health systems prepare for a comeback after a period of hostile contracting battles with insurers and financial decline. Norton Healthcare and Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare each are aligning with academic health systems and creating two separate statewide networks that will vastly increase the availability of specialty care and their leverage with payers. At the same time, a poor economy keeps the health plan sector highly competitive and focused on the bottom line, while employers are looking for more affordable health insurance options that include narrow provider networks, work-site clinics and consumer-driven health plans.
