Seattle, WA (March 31, 2015) — Array Health, a leading provider of private health insurance exchange technology, has announced that Lance Hood, Senior Director of Marketing, will present at The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism Private Exchange Forum on April 1, 2015. The session, co-presented with Brian Ridder, Vice President, Business Development of Benaissance, will address how employers can streamline and simplify the private exchange shopping, enrollment and management process.

WHAT: “Optimizing Employee and Employer Needs in a Private Exchange – From Enrollment to Premium Billing”

Private exchanges enable employees to shop for a wide range of benefits simply unattainable under the traditional model – a “one-size-fits-all” employer-selected set of benefits. However, while the enrollment, shopping and selection experience of private exchanges continue to become more employee-friendly, vast product selection by employees has created administrative burdens for employers around billing and payment management.

From bill and payment consolidation to defined contribution and split billing, change and opportunities are abundant. In this informative session, attendees will discover:

  • How online enrollment streamlines plan selection and eases complications that come from offering employees greater product choice.
  • The advantages of easy administration when front-end enrollment systems are fully integrated with premium billing and payment acceptance capabilities.
  • Key questions you should be asking your broker or carrier when considering an exchange.

WHEN: April 1, 2015 at 11:15 a.m. CT / 9:15 a.m. PT

WHO: Lance Hood, Senior Director of Marketing, Array Health and Brian Ridder, Vice President, Business Development, Benaissance. Session will be moderated by Doug Field, CEO of The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism.
