Health Plans

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the reality for health plan businesses has changed and caused significant confusion. The decline of fee-for-service care, the increasing role of government as a primary payor, ever-changing consumer preferences, and increasingly challenging competition have dramatically altered the profitability model for businesses like yours. At the same time, there is opportunity. The potential of big data and analytics is only now coming into focus. Changing demographics can create possibilities for strategically positioned businesses and organizations. The industry culture of continuous performance improvement presents an opportunity to determine which capabilities remain strong and which areas might no longer be relevant.

EKS&H made every effort to make our transition as seamless as possible from our previous auditor. Their entire audit team was professional and worked well with our staff throughout the audit process. I also appreciate the fact that they look for ways to add value to our business. Scott Nogajewski
