Under pressure from competitive threats and government mandates, many providers and insurers have come to the realization that working together may be the only way forward in a healthcare industry. From products and networks to risk arrangements and financial models, several issues must be thoroughly evaluated as part of a payer strategy. Kaufman Hall assists both providers and payers in creating differentiated strategies that improve care and reduce costs.

Working on A Broad Array of Managed Care Strategies with Payers and Providers
"The health plan isn’t getting into the hospital business, and the health system isn’t getting into the insurance business…instead the two organizations are working together to align the entire strategy around the consumer."

We help your organization look beyond transactions between hospitals and health systems to partnerships between health plans and provider organizations. Our recent payer-provider partnership highlights include:
Successful launch of a joint venture health plan between a payer and provider
Establishment of a health plan’s provider partnership program to prepare providers to take on financial risk for health plan lives and support the dual growth in the face of competition from a large, integrated health care company
