Aegis Risk Medical Stop Loss Premium Survey Findings
This year’s survey, its eighth year, reflects rising stop-loss premiums, the near elimination of annual or lifetime limits, and a strong commitment to employer-sponsored, self-funded health plans.
Further insight is provided on the increased involvement of finance and risk management staff in the stop-loss coverage decision as well as on the rising frequency of truly catastrophic claimants—with nearly a quarter of respondents reporting a claimant in excess of $1 million over the last two policy years. An additional update is provided on individual stop-loss deductible by employer size and other coverage provisions, including aggregate stop loss. Read the full survey findings now.
