Private Health Insurance: Research on Competition in the Insurance Industry
John E. Dicken (au)
Consolidation in the private health insurance (PHI) industry may be resulting in less competitive markets and contributing to rising health insurance rates paid by consumers and employers. However, measuring the extent of changes in market competition over time or the effects of changes is challenging. Researchers have used the data available to study competition in PHI markets, typically using one of two measures of competition: HMO market concentration; or the number of HMOs in a market. This report summarizes the findings of peer-reviewed research on concentration in PHI markets and the relationship between the level of competition and other variables, such as premium prices and provider reimbursement rates.
