What is your premium increase for 2011?

Tell us what your premium (or premium equivalent if you are self-insured) increase is for 2011 .Approximately what is the amount of this increase that is due to changes required by health reform? Did you make some benefit design changes to reduce your premium increase? If so, what changes did you make and what do you think the impact of those changes were on your final premium increase?  Be sure to tell us if you are fully-insured or self-insured.

I have a mid-sized group that just rec'd a 15% increase for 2011 from the Blues-- thought it was pretty good

As a business health coalition whose members direct contract with providers - they had a 2% increase this year.

Our self-funded plan renewed in July 2010, and the premium increased only 3%. The only benefit changes were those mandated for 2010(mental health parity mostly). Not sure how the required changes will affect rates for 2011/2012.

Gary Rost manages a sister business coalition in Savannah, GA where, through direct contracting with providers, the coalition and its members are able to implement the principles of value-based purchasing. Thanks for sharing Gary!
