The Collaborative is initially launching two important projects:
Private Exchange Employer Survey
This survey will help employers understand how their peers are thinking about private exchanges, their timelines for consideration, and what features they view as critical. It will also highlight what types of information about private exchanges are most important to employers. This survey will help develop the baseline for information collected in the RFI described below.
Private Exchange Request for Information (RFI)
This RFI will collect market intelligence about the leading providers of private health exchanges, resulting in detailed information on their financial models. product offerings, technology, business process capabilities, administrative burden, employee support and more. In addition, this market intelligence will help the Collaborative support employers in monitoring the evolution of the private exchange marketplace and determining those most likely aligned with an organization's needs and values.
