Whitepaper: 2021 Outlook for Value-Based Care and the Self-Insured Employer Marketplace

May 2021

Numerous efforts to transition the U.S. healthcare system to a value-based care construct have been attempted during the past couple decades, including top-down initiatives such as accountable care organizations, with mixed results. However, bright spots can be found, including bottom-up initiatives that are transforming pockets of the healthcare landscape. In particular, value-based care is gaining momentum in the evolving self-insured employer ecosystem.

Employer self-funded healthcare plans continue to grow in popularity, with over 100 million people in the United States now covered by these plans. However, in this era of value-based care, most self-insured plans are underequipped with tools and technologies to effectively engage employees, manage costs, and provide value to employees and employers. Efforts to advance value-based care for the self-insured employer marketplace are leading to numerous investment opportunities in services, technologies, and care providers.

During a recent event, panelists from Lincoln International, Stax Inc. and Farragut Square Group with relevant experience in the space provided an overview of the self-insured employer marketplace, described current trends and highlighted areas with attractive investment opportunities. They also summarized what they look for in conducting diligence about possible investments in these areas.
