MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/20/12 -- eHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: EHTH), parent company of eHealthInsurance, the nation's leading online source of health insurance for individuals, families and small businesses, will be speaking at the America's Health Insurance Plans Exchange Conference in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, June 20. eHealth executives will join a distinguished list of industry leaders who will be discussing health reform and how implementation decisions within health plans are shaping the delivery of care. The eHealth presenters include Paul Rooney, vice president of carrier relations; and Bob Alber, director of business operations. The executives will provide health plans insight into and best practices for participating in either public or private health insurance exchanges.
While states are working to implement public exchanges, there is growing interest among employers, insurers and other health care players in developing private exchanges. These types of online marketplaces will allow employers to more easily define and manage employee benefits, while providing insurers a new way of marketing and selling their products.
