The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the healthcare payer services market in North America. The market experienced disruptions in the supply chain, changes in consumer behavior, and a shift in healthcare utilization patterns. In addition, the pandemic highlighted the importance of healthcare payer services in ensuring that people have access to the care they need, particularly in times of crisis. One of the major impacts of the pandemic on the market has been on its supply chain. The pandemic caused disruptions in the supply chain, leading to shortages of personal protective equipment and other critical medical supplies. This affected healthcare providers' ability to provide care and increased the costs for healthcare payers.

The growing disease burden in North America is boosting the healthcare payer services market in several ways. Disease burden refers to the impact of a specific disease on a population, including the number of cases, deaths, and disabilities caused by disease. According to a survey conducted by The Harris Poll and CNBC, for 4,000 U.S. adults, it showed that 44% of older millennials reported having been diagnosed with at least one chronic health condition. As the disease burden in North America continues to grow, it is driving the demand for healthcare service and fueling the healthcare payer services market.

The presence of various healthcare policies in North America is significantly impacting the growth of region’s healthcare payer services market. These policies, designed to improve access to healthcare and control costs, can affect the market in several ways. One of the major impacts of healthcare policies is on the cost of healthcare. Policies, such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid, have increased the number of individuals with health insurance coverage, which can lead to greater demand for healthcare services & higher costs for payers. In addition, policies that seek to control healthcare costs, such as value-based reimbursement models, can lead to lower reimbursement rates for payers and providers, which can further increase costs.

Services Insights

ITO Services dominated the service segment with a market share of 51.3 % in 2022. The major growth factors are increasing demand for innovative and advanced technologies, a rise in investment in AI technology, information that can be easily accessed, and a rise in involvement in healthcare decisions. In addition, the rising costs, stringent regulations, and growing customer base are also likely to promote healthcare organizations to look for IT or integrated services.

KPO healthcare payer services segment is expected at a lucrative CAGR of 10.6% due to the surge in demand for highly skilled professionals and the cost advantage associated with outsourcing high-end processes to service providers from developing economies. Moreover, the growing need in emerging economies for low-cost & high-skilled professionals for domain-specific core and noncore activities of the payer vertical is one of the crucial factors anticipated to propel the sector in the forecast period.

Application Insights

The claims management services dominated the application segment in 2022 with a market share of 28.4%. The presence of ACA and increasing overall healthcare expenditure are among some crucial factors that are driving the number of members enrolled in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In addition, increase in patient load, improvements in healthcare coverage, and adoption of EHRs are further propelling the segment.

Provider management services are anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period. This segment consists of provider credentialing, provider data management, contracting, and network management. Key factors contributing to segment growth include technological advancements in healthcare provider management services, increasing focus on improving quality care through payer requirements.

End-use Insights

The private payers segment accounted for the majority revenue share of 58.8% in 2022. This is attributed to the increasing private investment in the healthcare payer vertical and growing government support to promote private investment in the healthcare industry. For instance, according to Cambridge University, most Canadians hold the highest private insurance, primarily through employee benefits.
