Health Insurance/Consumer-directed Programs

Pressures building over decades have converged to create a “perfect storm” environment for financing the delivery of quality healthcare in America. The landscape for health insurance, fundamentally steady while resting on a bedrock foundation of third–party reimbursement, is changing rapidly with the advent of consumerism and the backlash of employers unable to keep up with medical inflation.

The principals of Agilence Health Advisors have actively participated in the transformation of the health insurance industry over the past twenty years. Our deep domain experience in HMO start-ups and turnarounds, physician and hospital contracting, insurance brokerage operations and group insurance distribution combine to provide our health insurance clients with a wide-ranging arsenal of advisory and development services.

Transformation: defined benefit becomes defined contribution. The empowered, incentivized consumer. Change abounds on the health insurance landscape. Agilence is currently serving as a thought leader in what we believe will be a major transformation of the healthcare industry—the emergence of consumer-driven healthcare and resulting competition from the financial services industry for healthcare dollars and lives.
