Florida Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses
In 2006 and 2007, Pinnacle was retained by Floridians for Lower Insurance Costs (FLIC) to conduct independent actuarial studies to determine the cost implications on the Florida Health Care system from various changes to the Florida No Fault Law.
First in 2006 we conducted an independent actuarial study to determine the cost implications of repealing Florida’s current no-fault law. Pinnacle also priced first party medical payments benefits of $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000 as replacements for current personal injury protection (PIP) benefits.
Then in 2007, Pinnacle determined the impact that would result from the sunset of Florida’s current no fault law. Pinnacle also determined what current PIP insurance costs will be absorbed by other insurance programs compared to costs that will go unreimbursed since the current PIP coverage will be eliminated at the time that no fault is sunset. Pinnacle testified before the Florida House Committee Working Group on Insurance in support of the analysis. The Florida No Fault Law was sunset only to be reenacted immediately thereafter.
Minnesota Automobile No-Fault Impact Analyses
The Insurance Federation of Minnesota retained Pinnacle in 2006 to conduct an independent actuarial study to determine the possible cost implications of changing Minnesota’s current no-fault law. The scenarios were:
Pinnacle was retained by a major national political organization to investigate the impact of several workers compensation reforms including: implementation of mandatory managed care, privatization of state workers compensation insurance funds and the permitting of private insurers to enter previously monopolistic workers compensation states. Our analysis looked at state-level differences in rate levels, insurer experience, coverage competition, the mix of medical and indemnity claims and numerous other metrics. The study was extremely well received and ultimately presented to more than half of the nation’s governors.
At Pinnacle, we partner with you to explore whatever path it takes to find the answers you need.
