Develop rules to improve continuity and governance

Overview

BWC Project Plan Proposal

  • Improves rating accuracy & equity

  • Reduces premium volatility

  • Improves service options for employers

  • Makes Ohio more competitive with neighboring states

3


Overview

Key Recommendations

  • #1.Implement split experience rating by 2011 with transitional credibility reductions

  • #2.Moderate premium volatility by capping increases

  • #3.Create performance-based safety incentive, discount options

  • #4.Further analysis on continuity and group rules

Overview

Recommendations will Fundamentally Improve Ohio’s Overall Premium Rating Method

  • Improves rating accuracy by using both frequency and severity

  • Provides stability by distinguishing random accidents from consistently unsafe workplaces

  • Establishes equity among employer groups by aligning premiums with costs for individual employers

  • Sets performance targets and utilizes ongoing testing, analysis

  • Loss ratio is a key performance measure

5


Recommendation #1

  • Loss Ratio Performance

  • Split plan improves equity among employer segments

Oliver Wyman (2008). Development of a Split Plan for Experience Rating Private Employers. Exhibit N-2

Current plan loss ratios use actual payroll and claims from each policy year using 85% table to develop EM’s and base rates. These ratios do not reflect claim costs charged to the surplus fund (e.g. handicapped claims), which are the included rates.

Recommendation #1

  • Loss Ratio Relativities

  • Split plan improves equity among employer segments

Recommendation #1

Transitional Credibility Reductions Improve Equity

Oliver Wyman (2008).  Experience Rating Plan Options and Considerations; page 20

Improvement in the relationship of group loss ratios to non group shows that the past credibility changes have progressed in the right direction to improving equity, however there is still a large gap remaining between these policy segments.
