BROOKFIELD, Wis., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Connecture, Inc., the leading provider of Web-based information systems used to create health insurance marketplaces, today announced that Jeff Yaniga, vice president, private exchanges, will present "Private Exchanges – Where Does Medicare Fit" at the Medicare Marketing & Enrollment Strategies 2014 conference in Orlando, Fla., March 11-12, 2014. The conference, held in conjunction with two additional summits focused on consumer engagement through health innovation, and ancillary products and voluntary benefits, will bring together experts in the Medicare field.
Yaniga's presentation will provide attendees with an overview of the types of exchanges now available, a frank assessment of how Medicare impacted and influenced them (and vice versa), an overview of what Americans who use the exchanges care about, predictions on the future, and what Medicare marketers should be thinking about and preparing for today in order to maximize enrollment. Yaniga will also share the results of Connecture's Healthcare Shopping Survey, an extensive survey that regularly gauges consumers' views on shopping and enrolling in health plans online, as well as health insurance coverage in general.
"With more than a decade of experience providing the platforms that power the Plan Comparison and Online Enrollment Center for Medicare.gov, the single-payer private exchanges relied on by most of the nation's largest health plans, and the multi-payer private exchanges now transforming the commercial insurance industry, my colleagues and I at Connecture have a bird's eye view of the dramatic changes shaping the Medicare market," said Yaniga. "It's my hope that this session provides those in the field with information they can utilize in their own efforts to empower seniors to make decisions about their healthcare with confidence."
Keynote details include:
- Session: "Private Exchanges – Where Does Medicare Fit"
- Date: Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 11:15 a.m. EST
- Speaker: Jeff Yaniga, vice president, private exchanges, at Connecture
In the presentation, Yaniga will also draw on Connecture's unparalleled track record creating the online platforms more than 33 million Americans have used to successfully compare and enroll in health insurance online. No other company has enabled more consumers or brokers to determine which health plan best addresses the needs of individuals and their families, or more effectively empowers health plans, employers and benefits managers to streamline the health coverage purchasing process.
"We're in a period of great change right now," said Yaniga. "My session will reflect that reality and hopefully provide all involved with an opportunity to share ideas that are immediately relevant and useful in the Medicare environment."
