Assured Research on the American Health Care Act (March, 2017)
The emerging details of the AHCA and its likely impact on the medically insured lead us to conclude that the legislation is likely bad for workers' compensation insurers. Our recent Assured Comment provides the background, but much of the support is gleaned from new, 2016 data showing the WC loss ratios in 18 states maximally-impacted by the ACA are now outperforming the rest of the country. Unwinding the impact of ObamaCare and adding some 24 million to the ranks of medically uninsured will lead to cost shifting to WC insurers. Contact us for more information.
