  10. Climate, Process, “Hot” Issues • Personal Auto • Top 20 writers are requested to provide extensive data for Department analysis • Department considers rate indications at a level between statewide & company rating territories for all companies • We frequently see Phila. indications below R.O.S., consistent w/ ISO & PCI Stat Data

  11. Climate, Process, “Hot” Issues • Homeowners • Top 20 writers are requested to provide additional data for Department analysis • Department closely monitors any potential reductions in coverage or limits

  12. Climate, Process, “Hot” Issues • Personal Auto & Homeowners • Non-Traditional Rating Approaches (1 of 2) • More tiers & rating territories • Rating territories varying by coverage • Complex rating variables & algorithms • New & unusual characteristics being considered • Ex. number of flower shops per area or home improvement stores sales per area…

  13. Climate, Process, “Hot” Issues • Personal Auto & Homeowners • Non-Traditional Rating Approaches (2 of 2) • Main concerns • Renewal impacts (conflicts with our laws & regulations) • Fairness, accuracy and potential disparate impacts

  14. Climate, Process, “Hot” Issues • Workers Compensation • Companies are required to adopt bureau loss costs on the date approved by the Department • Companies can modify LCMs at any time

  15. Climate, Process, “Hot” Issues • Medical Malpractice & Other Com’l • 2007 Med Mal Capacity Study is underway • Limits are currently $500,000/$1,500,000 • Comm. didn’t find sufficient capacity in 2005 • Physician & Surgeon rates have not changed much since 2005 • Many new writers in the market in the last 5 years • 7 domestics, 6 foreign, 2 surplus lines, & 38 RRGs

  16. Potential Legislation • Personal Auto – HB 34 (2007) • (A change to “plain language”?) • Amend “tort” to “right to sue” • Increase the minimum limits under the MVFRL • From 15/30/5/5 to 25/50/10/10 • Require stacked UM/UIM @ BI limits • Require an extensive “menu” of coverage options • Possibly require Comp & Coll

  17. Potential Legislation • Credit / Insurance Scoring – HB 94 (2007) • Legislative proposals are submitted on this topic almost annually in Pennsylvania. • Scoring is not directly addressed in our law… currently. • Underwriting guidelines/practices do not required our prior review and/or approval. • We have not approved a personal lines rate/rule filing that contains credit scoring.
