"As much as they'd like to think otherwise, traditional carriers are not really known for being innovative," says SeeChange Health CEO Marty Watson. "Health plans don't yet seem comfortable with doing this for their fully insured book…because frankly it hits their bottom line pretty dramatically initially."

Martin Watson fiddled with health plan designs, more recently at UnitedHealth, before forming the start-up in 2008. "You want people to see a doctor on an annual basis; if you have type 2 diabetes, you need to do a lab test twice a year; if you can identify a cancerous condition a little earlier, you can save [later on]," says Watson. Get the picture.
The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies to cover preventive exams, such as mammograms, annual physical, and colonoscopies, but Watson says that is not enough to motivate people. So, SeeChange steps up incentives.
...
Watson says his company can afford to offer financial incentives, because it has newer and more efficient information technology systems than established insurance companies, and lower administrative expenses.
