3 opportunities in the health gap market

Wes Thompson is taking a different approach: He's started web-based store, Emerge.me, that now offers critical illness insurance and accident insurance.
Eventually, he hopes to add hospital indemnity insurance. Related: 3 ways to make ACA uncertainty lemonade for 2017 In other words: Thompson has set up an exchange that highlights the supplemental health salad and the apple pie rather than the major medical hamburger. By using the web to reach more prospects, simplify and speed up the sale process, he may be able to generate enough commission revenue to compensate for the fact that per-sale commissions are, naturally, lower than major medical commissions used to be, before everything went to heck. Thompson has years of experience in individual product distribution. In the 1990s, he built an independent brokerage distribution system for Cigna's life division. In recent years, he was president of Sun Life Financial Inc.'s Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts-based U.S. division, where he got into employee benefits and voluntary benefits distribution. He began to think harder about something unsettling: the holes in consumers' defenses against out-of-pocket health care expenses. "More individuals are moving toward higher and higher deductibles," Thompson said in a recent interview. Thompson says many consumers need to understand how much health exposure they really face. (Photo: Thinkstock) "That's been accelerating," Thompson said. For consumers, one huge problem with that shift is that many have no idea what a deductible is, let alone what having a high deductible could mean for their health care spending. Thompson sees that as an opportunity to win consumers over by helping them understand their coverage gaps. Thompson says consumers need to understand that the health protection gaps may aggravate retirement planning gaps. (Photo: Thinkstock) 2. Helping consumers think about retirement savings gaps Thompson sees an opportunity for agents, brokers and others to help consumers understand both their health cost protection gaps make their retirement savings gaps worse. Given how few members of Generation X or the baby boom generation have defined benefit pension plans, "there's already a strain on this cohort," Thompson said. The possibility that families might have to blow what little they've saved on out-of-pocket health care costs makes a bad situation even worse, Thompson said. Thompson thinks there's still room to improve how insurers offer gap-filler products to consumers. (Image: Thinkstock) 3. Digitizing the supplemental health sales process Insurers have been trying to sell supplemental health products through agents and brokers, and through sections on websites that focus mainly on selling major medical products and other types of products. But Thompson argued that traditional distribution methods have not done enough to make consumers aware of the products. "They're not getting to the masses," Thompson said. He's hoping that making the products the focus of an online marketplace will help expand consumer awareness.
