Managed Care

Navigating the Future of Health and Well-Being

Today and into the future, health plans must continuously re-evaluate their respective value propositions for employers, members and providers, given the levels of industry consolidation and the seismic shift in provider philosophy. From healthcare reform and innovation to changing demographics and consumer demands, the offerings across all business lines come with new challenges and untapped opportunities.

WittKieffer serves the full spectrum of health plan and managed care organizations, from regional and community plans to national organizations and independent Blues, many of which appear as perennial leaders on NCQA’s Health Plan Ratings list and other comparable rankings. Our firm is unique in that we hold preferred vendor status with the Association for Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP) and its members, underscoring our commitment to organizations that support the most vulnerable populations and underserved communities.

We are especially focused on government-sponsored plans as well as vertically integrated delivery systems with growing and/or historically significant market share within their health plans. As the line between payers and providers continues to blur, our managed care recruiters are optimally positioned to address the talent crossover and evolving roles within advanced organizations and complex collaboratives, particularly for emerging roles in population health management, ACOs and other clinically integrated networks.
