Aegis Risk Medical Stop-Loss Premium Survey Results

 

This year's survey reflects the ongoing prominence of medical stop-loss and a continued commitment to employer-sponsored, self-funded health plans. The occurrence of truly catastrophic claimants - in excess of $1 million - is further verified with over 21% of respondents reporting such a claimant in the last two policy years. Stop-loss remains the primary focus of risk management, with interest in private exchanges or captive arrangements not exceeding 10% of respondents.
