The health insurance market is an ever-evolving landscape, shaped by various factors such as technology advancements, changing demographics, and growing customer demands. Staying up to date with the latest trends in this sector is crucial for American Online Benefits Group to continue offering relevant and money savings products to our members. Let’s explore five key trends that are currently shaping the health insurance market.
Surge in Telemedicine and Virtual Healthcare Services
Telehealth has witnessed a significant surge in popularity in recent years, and this trend continues to shape the health insurance market. With access to virtual consultations, patients can receive non-emergency medical care conveniently, eliminating the need for in-person visits. American Online Benefits Group continues to stand on the frontline, offering telehealth to our members by integrating virtual care services into our coverage plans. This trend not only enhances access to healthcare for our members but also reduces the costs for both insurers and policyholders.

With our society continuing to move into a world of digital communication, this rings true when it comes to the storage of your medical information. Healthcare providers face the risk of a cyberattack which can compromise patient data, interrupt healthcare coverage, and damage the reputation of insurers and providers. In 2020 alone, the number of hacking incidents reported in healthcare jumped 42% in North America. American Online Benefits Group has partnered with Experian to offer the Experian Elite Plan, providing members with Medical Identity Monitoring. Members will be notified when their insurance card is used for medical care or to fill prescriptions. They work to verify the service or act if you suspect identity theft.

Insurers are adopting advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain to streamline operations, enhance customer experience, and detect fraud. Digital platforms and mobile applications are enabling customers to access policy information, submit claims, and interact with insurers more efficiently. This digital revolution not only improves operational efficiency for insurance providers but also empowers policyholders with great control and accessibility.
