BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Private health insurance exchanges expected to boom

Private health insurance exchanges are poised for rapid growth, according to a new analysis.

Based on, among other things, data collected from 10 private insurance exchange operators, the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that 2.5 million people received coverage in 2014 through private insurance exchanges.

Kaiser said in its report, released Tuesday, that many of the exchange vendors it spoke to said they “expected significant, often greater than 100% growth” in 2015.

A report released earlier this year by consulting firm Accenture projected that by 2018 exchange enrollment will hit 40 million — or roughly one quarter of all individuals with employment-based coverage.

Currently, such well-known employers as Darden Restaurants Inc., Sears Holdings Corp., United Parcel Service Inc. and Walgreen Co. offer coverage through private exchanges.
