2019 Aegis Risk Survey
For a 13th year, ISCEBS has
partnered with Aegis Risk to offer the annual Medical Stop Loss Premium Survey.
As a Society member, you have the opportunity to participate in this unique
survey focused exclusively on medical stop loss – an ever important aspect of
self-funded medical plans. With health care reform’s removal of annual and
lifetime health plan maximums, there continues to be a significant growth in
both catastrophic claim frequency and severity – including those in excess of
$1 million or more. [Participate now]
