2021 rate projections

Nationwide, we are dealing with an extraordinary health care crisis today and could be dealing with this well into the future. Currently, there is general uncertainty related to COVID-19, and it is unknown what the actual impact of related health care costs will amount to. We know you rely on the Trust to provide premium estimates as you work on preliminary budgets. We have analyzed our own loss ratios, factoring in economic impact, and provider dynamics to provide these preliminary 2021 projections.
