While considerable attention has been heaped on the public health insurance exchanges over the year, private health insurance exchanges “are experiencing hyper-growth” and enrollment could exceed that of public exchanges by 2017, “if not sooner,” according to Accenture. In a recent report, Accenture said employers, consumers and carriers alike are expressing enthusiasm for private exchanges, which are undergoing “an earlier-than-expected growth spurt.” More than 3 million individuals could enroll in health plans through private exchanges just during the 2014 benefit year, Accenture estimates.
