Clarifying a risk equalisation payment dispute
Milliman was retained to develop a sophisticated model to demonstrate how flaws in the current risk equalisation payment mechanism were effectively disincentivising healthcare system efficiency. We were then able to use formulas and examples, alongside our deep knowledge of the operation of healthcare systems worldwide, to highlight these technical problems, explaining them both to barristers in preparation for court and before the bench. Milliman's preparation work and testimony illuminated the complicated technical issues underlying our client's claim, allowing this insurer to fully explain their case to the court.
