Health insurance exchanges will draw an estimated 24
million customers to the individual market by 2023 and represent a fundamental
change in the insurance industry from wholesale to retail. The courtship of
newly insured Americans begins with enrollment in new online insurance
exchanges as of October 1, 2013.
New survey research published by PwC’s Health Research Institute (HRI) found
that most health insurers are entering the exchange market -- although they
face significant challenges and new competition to attract and retain members.
HRI looked at what’s at stake for hospitals, physicians and other providers in
enrolling new members and the challenges ahead for insurers and other new
market participants, many of whom will be entering the individual insurance
market for the first time.
