More than 300 New York insurers have participated in a program that encourages insurers to use their business expertise to help improve their customers’ experience with health care.
The program, known as the New York Insurer Innovation Leadership program, launched in September with a goal of providing insurers with the knowledge, skills and resources to help them create and deliver innovative products and services to their clients.
In addition to offering incentives, insurers can also leverage their expertise to promote their own brands, said Amy Schreiber, the director of the New Yorkers Insurers Program.
The goal is to make insurers more competitive and more innovative in providing affordable health insurance for people across New York City, said Schreib.
The programs first launched in Manhattan, with the goal of giving insurance companies in the city the resources to create, market and deliver health insurance that will improve the quality of life for people living in the area.
Insurance companies have the resources and expertise to improve the experience of patients, which is a very important part of the insurance market,” said Schimber.
Insurers participating in the program have already received more than $300 million in rebates, rebates and other payments, and more than 1,300 insurers have been selected.
Schreib said New York insurance companies have a strong history of being innovative, and that they are ready to take advantage of the program.
In fact, the program is so well-received by insurers, that they’re now planning to expand it to other New York cities.
Insurance companies are working with their community partners to make the program a success, said Eric Shuster, a New York attorney representing insurers who have participated.
Insurer representatives have been working with community groups to help make the programs a success.
The program is also attracting top talent from across the nation.
