Atlantic Information Services’ Health Plan Week Reaches Milestone with 1000th Issue
Date:7/25/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

Atlantic Information Services’s (AIS) industry-leading newsletter Health Plan Week (HPW) recently reached a milestone with the publication of its 1000th issue on July 22, 2013. Since its inaugural issue on May 22, 1991, the newsletter has been covering the gamut of health insurance and health policy news for more than twenty years. As the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act go into effect, HPW will continue to chronicle the impact on health insurers, employers, providers and other stakeholders.

Of the time of HPW’s first issue, AIS publisher and founder Rick Biehl recalls, “We were in the midst of a national debate over health care reform. Managed care had revolutionized health care financing, and presidential hopeful Bill Clinton was campaigning on a proposal to overhaul the U.S. health care system. It was a great opportunity for a company with health business reporting expertise.”

The first issue examined then-experimental HMOs and PPOs, and also surveyed the prospect of a national health plan. A few weeks later, HPW covered Health Net, Inc.’s conversion to a publicly traded company, and noted that the median base salary for managed care organization CEOs was $170,000, plus annual incentive payments equal to 38% of salary. By contrast, UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley collected $13.9 million in total pay in 2012, according to the June 24 issue of HPW.
