US health systems develop strategies to capture the newly-insured

Up to 16 million Americans are expected to gain health insurance coverage in 2014 under two major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The coverage expansion, one of the largest in US history, is an opportunity for health systems to soften the blow of declining admissions, care moving outside of hospitals, and reduced government payments. Yet few health systems have developed comprehensive strategies to identify, educate and help enroll people in private health plans sold through the new insurance marketplaces known as exchanges.

PwC's Health Research Institute shares a deeper analysis of the implications of the 51 state exchanges that go live October 1, 2013 in our first of a two-part series Health exchanges open for business.
