Understanding Shifting Insurance Coverage Impacts

  • This page as PDF


Join Avalere’s panel of market access and policy experts to learn about the shifting insurance coverage landscape and how these trends impact manufacturers, payers, policymakers, and providers.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic downturn, millions of Americans have lost employer-sponsored insurance and have either enrolled in publicly subsidized coverage or become uninsured.  Healthcare stakeholders will need to adapt to these changes and consider site-of-care policies and reimbursement, evolution of benefit structure, patient and provider access and support programs, and cost-sharing implications.

  • Care delivery impacts (physicians and health plan coverage of services)
  • New variables for consumer plan choices
  • Payer responses and policy change
