A special kind of stupid
(“Analyses of annual changes in MLRs, claims, and premiums suggest that both compliant and noncompliant plans are sensitive to the ACA's bright-line MLR standard, and that changes in claims, rather than changes in premiums, are the primary way that administrators move their plans (upward or downward) toward the minimum MLR standard.”)
(“Individual insurers with 2010 MLRs >10 percentage points below the minimum exhibited the largest increases in MLRs, with changes occurring through increases in claims and indirectly through decreases in administrative expenses.”)
(“We model the impact of MLR regulation and show empirically that the 80/20 rule has, indeed, led insurers to have substantially higher medical claims costs—nearly one-for-one with their distance below the regulatory threshold.”)
(“We find that managers of health plans with premanaged MLRs less than their required MLRs overestimate claims, thereby increasing reported MLRs and reducing or eliminating cash rebate payments.”)

It’s not business. It’s personal.
