Milliman Survey: Even with New Contracting Approaches Rates Increase 11.7% in 2011

Milliman's 2010 Group Health Insurance Survey found insurers estimated a 10.2% and 11.7% increase for HMOs and PPOs respectively for 2011.

The survey also found that the most frequent contracting and cost control steps insurers are taking in 2011 include:
  • Quality incentive programs
  • Shared risk with provider networks
  • Increased price transparency with members
  • More aggressively tiered providers networks
  • Reduced broker commissions
Almost all of the insurers responding to the survey indicate they plan to participate in health insurance exchanges in 2014.
