A rigorous approach providing in-depth financial insight and risk assessment

BerryDunn’s actuarial services help clients manage and mitigate financial risk as they work to improve access to healthcare for the populations they serve. Our credentialed healthcare actuaries perform complex analyses and provide clear, concise, strategic advice to inform client decision-making. We work collaboratively with clients to understand key healthcare access issues in depth, and provide targeted, actionable recommendations.

Our team plays a key role in helping healthcare clients maintain financial stability by accurately assessing risks. Like our clients, who range from not-for-profit managed care organizations, risk-bearing provider systems, and group health insurance purchasers to state insurance regulators and government healthcare policy agencies, each of our solutions is unique. We embrace innovative, creative ideas to achieve the best possible results, and tailor our engagements to meet each client’s needs, providing the right services at the right time. Those services can include:

  • Estimating and modeling risk exposure for insurers, providers, and ACOs
  • Pricing health insurance benefits
  • Estimating incurred claims and healthcare cost trends
  • Estimating the value of unpaid claim liabilities
  • Providing actuarial certification of insurer liabilities
  • Developing premium rates and supporting proposal documentation and supporting clients in rate negotiations
  • Analyzing the effect of legislation on insurers and the health insurance market
  • Helping insurance regulators protect consumers and ensure the financial stability of the health insurance market, including reviewing insurance rate filings and examining carrier market conduct
  • Advising employers and employee benefit trusts—and other entities that either self-insure or purchase large-group insurance—on costs and options
