More than 95 percent of senior health care professionals plan to participate in at least one health insurance exchange (HIX), according to “HIX Insights from the 2013 Healthcare Mandate Summit,” a study from Edifecs Inc. And 80 percent plan to join one in 2014. The Congressional Budget Office projected that as many as 12 million Americans would buy health insurance through a HIX in 2014.

“The message we heard from Summit attendees is that while compliance with mandates such as Health Insurance Exchanges is no easy feat, there are considerable benefits to be gained, including increased member enrollment,” said Jamie Gier, VP of corporate marketing for Edifecs. “The value of the Healthcare Mandate Summit was in helping healthcare organizations confirm whether they are on the right path toward compliance and where they can improve. And as the results of the survey demonstrate, many health insurers are embracing the opportunities that exchanges can provide.”
