Description:
The Government announced on 27th May 2010 that it has decided to implement a new robust risk equalisation scheme to support the core policy of community rating in the private health insurance market. The Health Insurance Authority has been asked by the Minister for Health & Children (“The Minister”) to carry out a consultation process regarding a new robust risk equalisation scheme system to take effect in 2013 (including the transitional arrangements), as follows: “In setting out on this consultation, it is important to make clear to the Authority that the Government has decided that the new risk equalisation scheme should be comprehensive and cover as much as possible in terms of the levels and indicators of risk which can and should, where practicable, be taken into account. While not wishing to prejudge the outcome of the consultation, the Government has decided that the key elements of age, gender and health status must form part of any proposals on the new risk equalisation scheme, and that as much as possible of this should be included in the transitional arrangements to be put in place in advance of the introduction of the risk equalisation scheme.
