The Challenge
Clarify Confusion and Adapt to Regulation Changes

Given the fickle legal mandates, an ever-changing scope, and organizational challenges, this was a severely complex challenge. To make matters worse, customers had no idea how the changes would affect them. So our strategy team got to work using our human-centered design principles. We paved a clear path so both desktop and mobile visitors could find the right health care plan—quickly. Then we streamlined the purchase experience and accounted for the complex data sources. Our new KP shopping tool made it easy to find the best value, even in consideration of possible tax credits.
