About Us - Client Experiences

With a dedicated focus on medical stop loss and related strategies, Aegis Risk has a deep pool of experience to leverage for its clients - who cover a wide variety of industries with varied coverage concerns.

Our stop loss renewal is high. Are there less costly alternatives?

Who
A health care provider with approximately 3,200 employees.

Issues

  • The incumbent stop loss coverage is provided by the health plan and the renewal is over 50%. Their rates are final.

 

  • Recent stop loss claims experience didn't justify the requested rate level.

 

  • Further health plan cost reductions were needed, but not at the expense of plan participants.


Solution

  • Obtained market preferential proposals from four leading, 'A' rated independent carriers.

 

  • The selected carrier provided a reduction of $600,000 from the incumbent's renewal premium of approximately $1 million - a 60% reduction.

 

  • The significant cost reduction - from the stop loss savings - allowed participant contributions to remain flat for the following year.

Our claims are strong – but our stop loss doesn't reflect. Are there writers who will?

Who

A leading automotive supplier with approximately 7,000 employees.

 

Issues

  • Legacy businesses caused significant claims expense, but divestitures and acquisitions changed that exposure.

 

  • Aggressive health management strategies were sharply reducing the frequency of high claimants.

 

  • The incumbent stop loss carrier, a national direct writer, gave only a slight credit on the renewal and sought an 18% increase to approximately $2.7 million in annual premium.

 

Solution

  • Obtained market preferential proposals from two national managing general underwriters with ‘A’ rated carriers who provided more underwriting credit to the evolving experience.

 

  • The selected underwriter provided a proposal at $1.7 million or a reduction of approximately $1 million or 27% below the current rates. Successive renewal increases over the next two years were about 8% each.

 

  • Supported a further objective to institute a multi-divisional “catastrophic claimant risk pool” for individuals in excess of $50,000 and below the stop loss deductible of $350,000; calculation and reporting is performed by Aegis Risk.

We need stop loss independent from our claim payor(s).

Who
A domestic subsidiary of a Global Fortune 500 energy company with approximately 3,000 covered employees.

Issues

  • A new plan option created a multi-administrator environment. The incumbent PPO managed the stop loss. Independent coverage was sought with no ties to ASO decisions and changes.

 

  • A 15% renewal rate increase - moderate in many circumstances.

 

  • Pharmacy expense was an increasing but uncovered component of catastrophic claims.

 

 

Solution

  • Obtained market preferential proposals from four leading, 'A' rated independent carriers. The selected carrier required no rate increase.

 

  • Negotiated additional contract enhancements including pharmacy coverage and comprehensive run-in claim protection.

 

  • Final premium savings and contract enhancements increased coverage value by approximately 27%.
