Actuarial Update, January 2017

January 31, 2017
The January Actuarial Update covers the Individual and Small Group Markets Committee’s new issue paper examining the experience of the individual health insurance market under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and considerations of that market’s sustainability under any potential reforms or repeal of the ACA. Also in this issue the Actuarial Standards Board adopts revisions to two actuarial standards of practice; Academy volunteers and interested parties must commit to objectivity; a new webpage features important information about principle-based reserving (PBR); and the Academy is seeking pooled health plan data.
