BCBSVT 2014 Provision for Large Claims and Stop Loss

Filing Status: 
Approved
Decision Date: 
Friday, April 11, 2014

This filing determines the factors BCBSVT uses to predict the cost of large health insurance claims and the pricing of stop loss coverage for self-insured groups. Large claims pooling and stop loss coverage provide financial protection against unexpectedly high medical claims, which unlike the costs of routine care, can vary significantly year-to-year.
