Assignment Description

ECON 7021 - Case 4 – Health Insurance Decisions


Imagine you are the VP of Human Resources for a large health system. One of your biggest responsibilities is to oversee the provision of health care benefits for the system’s employees and their families. In fact, behind employee salaries, ‘health benefits’ is the biggest line item in the system’s budget. Your CFO is worried about next year’s budget and has approached you with a need to reduce spending on health benefits – or at least cut down on the increase in spending as much as possible.


Your group is self-insured and currently uses your local BC/BS provider as a third party administrator (TPA). Your group of 10,000 employees has 20,000 covered lives (or members) and currently uses only the BC/BS PPO plan. Your current utilization profile looks like this:



Cost Cat.










$ 15,000




$           300




$           288


svcs /1000/yr


$           480




$             48


BC/BS has given you guidance about next year’s likely trends. They expect both unit prices ($/svc) and utilization (units per year) to increase by 5% per year. They have suggested two alternate delivery models for your employees that could save you money:

Narrow-network HMO – Using your own system as the basis for a narrower network option, you could continue to offer essentially the same benefit structure as you currently do. The limited choice of providers would deliver your benefits with no rise in utilization (you would still incur the 5% rise in unit price)

High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) – In this choice, you would continue to use the BC/BS large network, but your employees would be given a $5,000 deductible. The size of the deductible means that your employees would decrease their utilization of services by 5% (and as before, plan for a 5% rise in unit costs).


Neither alternative is especially attractive to your employees. Therefore, you’ll need to plan to put incentives in place in the form of greater premium contribution and/or HSA funding. Naturally, employees have different preferences and pain points, and they’ll have different subsidy levels that attract them. For the HMO, it will cost $30 per year to convince the first 500 employees to switch, $60 to convince 1,000, $90 to convince 1,500 etc.

For the HDHP, you’ll need to do better (people really don’t like high-deductible plans). For this plan, it will cost $60 to convince 500 employees to switch, $120 to convince 1,000, $180 to convince 1,500, etc. So, as an example, if you wanted 5,000 employees (10,000 members) to take the HDHP plan, you’d need to budget a $3,000,000 subsidy into your projected costs.

Your job – from the available facts, calculate the current year’s spending by category and in total. Then, calculate the expected spending next year assuming no changes are made to the plan. Finally, show the optimal mix of PPO, HMO and HDHP members in order to minimize total expense to the health system. Keep in mind, the incentives given to employees to choose a lower cost option should be considered a cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it free to get my assignment evaluated?

Yes. No hidden fees. You pay for the solution only, and all the explanations about how to run it are included in the price. It takes up to 24 hours to get a quote from an expert. In some cases, we can help you faster if an expert is available, but you should always order in advance to avoid the risks. You can place a new order here.

How much does it cost?

The cost depends on many factors: how far away the deadline is, how hard/big the task is, if it is code only or a report, etc. We try to give rough estimates here, but it is just for orientation (in USD):

Regular homework$20 - $150
Advanced homework$100 - $300
Group project or a report$200 - $500
Mid-term or final project$200 - $800
Live exam help$100 - $300
Full thesis$1000 - $3000

How do I pay?

Credit card or PayPal. You don't need to create/have a Payal account in order to pay by a credit card. Paypal offers you "buyer's protection" in case of any issues.

Why do I need to pay in advance?

We have no way to request money after we send you the solution. PayPal works as a middleman, which protects you in case of any disputes, so you should feel safe paying using PayPal.

Do you do essays?

No, unless it is a data analysis essay or report. This is because essays are very personal and it is easy to see when they are written by another person. This is not the case with math and programming.

Why there are no discounts?

It is because we don't want to lie - in such services no discount can be set in advance because we set the price knowing that there is a discount. For example, if we wanted to ask for $100, we could tell that the price is $200 and because you are special, we can do a 50% discount. It is the way all scam websites operate. We set honest prices instead, so there is no need for fake discounts.

Do you do live tutoring?

No, it is simply not how we operate. How often do you meet a great programmer who is also a great speaker? Rarely. It is why we encourage our experts to write down explanations instead of having a live call. It is often enough to get you started - analyzing and running the solutions is a big part of learning.

What happens if I am not satisfied with the solution?

Another expert will review the task, and if your claim is reasonable - we refund the payment and often block the freelancer from our platform. Because we are so harsh with our experts - the ones working with us are very trustworthy to deliver high-quality assignment solutions on time.
