The report lists three groups:
Large Claim Volume: Those insurers with claims volumes of 400 or more paid claims in the previous calendar year.
Medium Claim Volume: Those with less than 400 but at least 65 paid claims in the previous calendar year.
Small Claim Volume: Those with less than 65 paid claims in the previous year, but at least 65 claims in the previous three-year period.
Insurers are listed by name and NAIC number or as a named self-insured employer. Initially, performance data will be listed for individual insurers, not combined for the same corporate holding company system. However, when information becomes available that identifies these corporate families, the report will include combined data for corporate groups for multiple insurers within the same NAIC Group Number. Although future reports may include data for corporate "families", assessment of performance and enforcement proceedings under DWD 80.02(3) will be made for each individual company insuring the risk.
Insurers who are the best performers are listed first for the individual indicators. Rankings for insurers is based on volume. For large insurers, it is quarterly data, for medium, it is year-to-date and for small, it is 3-year.
