Insights for Healthcare Leaders
Dear Healthcare Colleagues, 

As the first month of 2020 comes to an end, and we wrap a successful event at AAPAN's 2020 Innovations Forum , I’d like to thank all of you for your continued support of the HealthCare Executive Group. 

It’s hard to believe that we are commencing our 32nd -year of operations. Who would have thought that our little users group idea in 1988 would turn into the nationally recognized organization it is today? 

We’ve started the year on a high note - officially partnering with some great organizations, becoming an Educational Partner with America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) , a Non-Profit Partner and HIMSS20 Collaborator with HIMSS and an Association Partner with HLTH . Additionally we continue to work closely with our event partners including AAPAN , WEDI and WHCC to name a few. 

It’s very rewarding to work with each of these organizations by attending and contributing to their programs in one way or another. This year will certainly be a busy one for the HCEG Team!

I invite you to read our most recent newsletter below to learn about upcoming events and opportunities to connect with HCEG.

Keep smiling,

Executive Director
The HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG)

On the HCEG Blog
Over 30 years ago, C-suite leaders of healthcare organizations came together to form the Managed Care Executive Group (MCEG) - a peer-to-peer mentoring concept used to help its members solve their problems with input and advice from other group members. And 60 years before MCEG was born, Napoleon Hill – author of the popular book Think and Grow Rich – shared the idea of a Mastermind Group . In 2014, the Managed Care Executive Group rebranded as the HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) and continued its mission as a Mastermind Group for healthcare executives.

Read this new post sharing an overview on how the HealthCare Executive Group can support you, your mission, and the organization you support to achieve true digital transformation in these uncertain times of 2020 and beyond.

What if instead of purchasing a specific plan from an insurer, employers established a defined contribution health plan via an HRA for each employee? Each employee would use their HRA funds to purchase an individual policy of their choice from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace. These policies would have no pre-existing conditions and would provide all essential health benefits, mitigating risk of discrimination.
