Denny Weinberg has more than four decades of management and executive experience, having led companies in a diverse range of industries, including real estate, aviation, and health insurance. Since 2014, Denny Weinberg has served as chief executive officer of Hixme, a private health care exchange that has prepared strategically to continue coordinating quality care regardless of the fate of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Despite Obamacare being in danger of repeal in 2017, Hixme plans to continue helping employers reduce benefit costs and helping employees access a network of more than 3,800 plans. The company is based on a business model that keeps it insulated from the fate of Obamacare, which will likely remain controversial throughout 2017.
For years, Hixme has consulted with experienced advisors in Washington in order to be prepared for this scenario. If Congress tries to target the public exchanges and eliminate tax credits in favor of other subsidies, Hixme will be prepared because it has tapped into the broader insurance market beyond the health care exchanges created under Obamacare.
Further, to replace Obamacare, Congress may emphasize more use of pretax savings benefits in an effort to make health care coverage more portable between states. Hixme’s coverage is already portable and is grounded in a “bundling” approach that integrates pretax savings, health insurance, and other banking components.
Hixme plans to continue to provide a variety of options that meet individuals’ need for high-quality, flexible coverage regardless of the fate of Obamacare.
