MILWAUKEE, Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Exchange Resources (HER) has just announced the release of the 2016 HER Active Private Health Insurance Exchange Benchmark Survey, a survey focused exclusively on assessing the capabilities of leading private health insurance exchange (HIX) operators. Private HIX operators help employer groups enroll employees in health coverage. The invitation to participate in the survey was shared with select HIX operators last week. The HIX operator survey responses are the basis of the HER Exchange Benchmark Report. The report provides HIX operators with blinded comparative metrics to further the development of programs that help employers and their employees become better health insurance purchasers and more informed consumers of health services.
HER recognizes the value of offering an independent and objective format for the exchange providers to respond. This confidential and unbiased forum allows for unprecedented results of transparency and meaningful measures of comparison. The formal HER Active Exchange Benchmark Survey results are scheduled to be released to the participating HIX providers in the second quarter of 2016. The information shared with HIX operators will offer significant value to employers and consumers exploring a private exchange strategy.
The HER Benchmark Survey Report evaluates HIX provider's performance across four key areas:
- Exchange model
- Operating platform
- Employer experience
- Participant experience
"Moving to a private exchange is a sensitive issue with visibility all the way to the C-Suite for employers. Providing an independent and objective overview through comparative tools is critical to ensuring a viable and growing market. The rapid evolution of the HIX industry, variations of exchange models in the market, and wide array of unique employer program requirements demand careful assessment before making a leap," said Melissa Marrero, Co-Founder of HER. "We offer a decade of HIX technical knowledge and large employer implementation experience to help clients maximize opportunities and mitigate risks as the US health care delivery system evolves."
