Looking to offer employers and consumers with a one-stop shopping experience, health plans are aggressively adding ancillary products to their private exchanges?
Ancillary services are employee offerings that don’t fall under major medical coverage; auxiliary or supplement services used to support diagnosis and treatment of a patient’s condition.
