Insurance & Benefits Brokers - 5 Profitable Solutions For 2013 and Beyond

The New Year delivers many Disruptive Changes due to PPACA/Obamacare. 2013 also delivers incredible and profitable opportunities for Brokers. Carriers, and Service Providers. Changing is not matter of Choice! It is a matter of survival!

PRLog - Dec. 27, 2012 - SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Ring Out The Old and Ring In The New!  This really describes the Insurance and Benefits Industries from 2012 into 2013 and Beyond!

Unfortunately, what was in the past for Carrier, Brokers, and Service Providers will never be again. For these groups the "New" is very uncertain and challenging. The future will also be challenging for Employers, Employees and Individuals. In past years industry changes were Evolutionary. Brokers, Carriers, and Service providers merely adjusted their business plans to better and more profitably plan the New Year. Employers and Employees reacted to Price Hikes. Individuals had few Choices. Industry changes are now Dramatic!

2013 is different! PPACA/Obamacare and other new Disruptive Changes have presented a totally different paradigm! Those in the Employee Benefits Marketplace - including Carriers, Brokers, TPAs, Enrollment Companies, Technology Providers - have been forced to develop new sets of Plans, Programs, and/or Services to comply with PPACA and meet the needs of Employers, Employees, and Individuals. Health and Human Services (HHS) is rolling-out regulations and guidelines on a daily basis.Carriers must create Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) that include Essential Health Benefits (EHBs). Carriers must meet Medical Plan Ratios (MLRs) or be penalized. Brokers face reduced or disappearing commissions in the face of MLR and Market Forces. Service Providers must revamp and create new technologies to accommodate PPACA. Employers face a new Benefits Marketplace with Mandates and Penalties. Employees face uncertainties about their Employers participation and Funding.

Throughout 2012 BenefitPace.bi (http://www.benefitplace.biz/)z (BP) and BPTradeShow.com (http://www.benefitplace.biz/bpts-about.php) (BPTS) watched most players in the Insurance and Benefits Industries waiting for a Supreme Court ruling and then the Presidential election to reverse the Doom and Gloom they foresaw in PPACA/Obamacare. There was little focus on how to Plan and Profit in 2013 and Beyond. BP and BPTS used this time to Strategize and Plan! The time has come to take action and address the Disruptive Changes rolling out with PPACA/Obamacare.

About Change - A friend and colleague passed along a quote that he lives by when facing challenges and change:

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference".

Brokers, Carriers, and Service Companies cannot change PPACA/Obamacare! They can make changes to their Business Plans that adopt new Strategies and Solutions that will be Productive and Profitable. They must make the necessary changes to assist Employers, Employees, and Individuals in meeting their Needs and Price Points with Compliant Plans, Programs, and Services for Reducing Risk and Delivering Piece-of-Mind!

What are the Brokers, Carriers, and Service Providers Facing?

have lost a substantial portion of their revenues traditionally generated from Group Health Insurance Commissions due to mandated Minimum/Medical Loss Ratios (MLRs). They see Federal and State Exchanges as a direct competitor for the Delivery of Health Plans. They need to be considered Trusted Advisors by Employers, Employees and Individuals. Brokers face partially shifting to a Fee Based Model to replace lost commissions. Their Employer Clients are considering an exit from providing Employee Benefits - Plans are time-consuming and ever escalating in cost. With this Employees would be turned loose to the Individual Plan Marketplace. Brokers have little or no access to the Individual Marketplace.

Carriers have been forced to re-structure their Plans offered to Employers, Employees, and Individuals to be compliant as Qualified Health Plans (QHBs) which are required to offer mandated Essential Health Benefits (EHBs). Carriers face the loss of Brokers as their traditional distribution channel because commissions were reduced or eliminated due to the mandated MLRs. Private Exchanges threaten to put Carriers side-by-side for comparison and competitive pricing on internet based platforms.

Service Providers have been forced to upgrade or create new Technologies to meet the demands of PPACA. New competitors have entered the Service Provider's marketplace offering new technologies to support Private Exchanges, Defined Contribution, the Education processes, and Enrollments that accommodate Employee and Individual Choices.
