Edward Kaplan

Senior Vice President, Health Practice Leader

Mr. Kaplan is a Senior Vice President and the National Health Practice Leader in Segal’s New York office. In addition, he leads Segal’s Medical Stop Loss Leadership Group and supports the New York Health Alliance. Mr. Kaplan has more than 30 years of experience in the benefits industry and has specialized expertise in pricing and plan design strategies for managed medical, dental and prescription drug programs. He works with companies, governments and collectively bargained plans (including a statewide retirement health plan system, coalition of entertainment industry health plan sponsors and the collectively bargained workers of a national transportation employer). In 1996, Mr. Kaplan created the Segal Health Plan Trend Cost Survey, now a standard in the industry, and client appreciation and use of the survey has contributed to Segal’s national reputation as a leader in prescription drug plan benefit consulting and pharmacy benefits management consulting.

Prior to joining Segal, Mr. Kaplan served as an Associate Manager of Underwriting for a major insurance carrier, where he helped to develop managed care plan designs, pricing techniques and financial risk sharing arrangements. He also served as a Health Consultant for a major consulting firm, where he assisted in the development of rate manuals for managed medical, dental and prescription drug programs, and was involved in several special studies related to managed care, including studies on the prescription drug “shoebox” effect, HMO “skimming” and other issues.

Mr. Kaplan received a BA in Economics from Rutgers University.

Mr. Kaplan is quoted frequently in general business and employee benefit publications on managed care issues. He has authored articles and book chapters for several trade journals and publications, including Employee Benefits Handbook, published by WG&L; Trustees Handbook, published by the International Foundation of Employee Benefits; IPMA HR News; and Workspan magazine.
