  • Mental Illness in the Workplace
These sessions are available in Members Only (login required).

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.
