RWJF Plan Choice Challenge Finalists Announced!
The winners of the RWJF Plan Choice Challenge, launched this summer to address consumer choice in purchasing health insurance and understanding cost-features of each plan, were announced last week at the Health 2.0 Fall Conference in Santa Clara, CA.
This challenge sought app based solutions to simplify the process of choosing a health plan based on pricing and cost-sharing features. In an increasingly consumer-based health care marketplace, one of the main goals of this challenge was to offer a greater number of choices and variation for those looking to purchase healthcare for themselves or their employees.
The RWJF Plan Choice Challenge works to convey highly customized healthcare data to its users, so that they are able to make the most informed and cost conscious choice. The tools’ focus on comprehensive data and cost-sharing features, using Breakaway Policy Strategies’ Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) Compare Dataset will allow for a strong consumer experience.
The Phase I finalists are:
- Clear Health Analytics
- Consumers’ CHECKBOOK/Center for the Study of Services
- Health Decisions US
- Take Command Health
