Health Insurance Options Amid Pandemic

frank lamjus

For the tens of millions of Americans who have lost their jobs, there is another frightening reality to absorb: amid a global health pandemic, they no longer have health insurance. This is one of the big problems with having insurance linked to a workplace plan, but for more than 156 million Americans, or just under half of the country’s total population, that’s the coverage they have.

According to healthcare advocacy group Families USA, layoffs between February and May meant that 5.4 million workers lost their health insurance coverage, “an increase nearly 40 percent higher than the largest previous annual increase in uninsured adults ever recorded.” If you suddenly find yourself uninsured, there are three choices for coverage: COBRA, the Affordable Care Act, and Medicaid.

Let’s start with COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act), the federal rule that requires group health plans “to provide a temporary continuation of group health coverage

The Future of Insurance Industry Will Not Be Decided by Insurtechs Alone: Viewpoint

frank lamjus

Led by ambitious entrepreneurs from outside insurance, backed by Silicon Valley and focused on industry disruption, early insurtech initially promised to displace incumbents and usher in a new era of insurance offerings and tech-driven solutions.

Nearly 10 years since its inception, the reality of insurtech has evolved.

The messaging about supplanting industry giants is gone. In its place is a more collaborative environment led by insurance industry leaders partnering with tech solution providers. The simple reality is technology cannot do everything. The integration of experienced insurance professionals and tech is needed to manage across the insurance value chain.

Insurtech is creating buzz through mergers and acquisitions, further integrating innovative technologies with insurance industry leaders.

Study reveals women’s experiences in maternity care based on insurance type

frank lamjus

Giving birth in the United States is a radically different experience based on race and income, illustrated most brutally by the Black and Indigenous maternal mortality crisis.

Now, a new study from the Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) and the National Partnership for Women & Families finds insurance type itself also plays a role in how mothers are treated, and how much agency they have in maternity decisions.

Published in the journal PLOS ONE, the first-of-its-kind study is part of Listening to Mothers in California, which examined women’s experiences giving birth in California hospitals in 2016.

The study finds that, after adjusting for demographics and health conditions, a mother on Medicaid is three times less likely than a mother on private insurance to feel she had a choice about whether she had a vaginal or cesarean birth, or an

Insurance tech startup The Helper Bees raises $6M to expand – Business – Austin American-Statesman

frank lamjus

Austin-based startup The Helper Bees, which develops technology for the insurance industry, has raised $6 million to accelerate growth, its first significant funding round, the company said Thursday.

The investment was led by Silverton Partners, with participation from Austin Impact Capital, Techstars and individual investors.

The Helper Bees primarily makes a technology platform that helps decentralize long-term care for patients, with a goal of helping them remain in their homes instead of having to go to long-term care residences.

By moving care to a home-based model, the company reduces costs for insurance carriers and patients, said Char Hu, CEO of The Helper Bees. Savings come, for instance, when the company handles all of the back-end operations of filing insurance paperwork while matching caregivers with home-based patients.

“Because we’re technology-enabled, we’re able to charge the insurance carrier less, because we have scalability,” Hu said, adding that the company’s model saves up
