New Jersey Aids Stop-Loss

supreme-courtIn a recent legislative update from SIIA, it was noted that the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) approved regulations lowering minimum stop-loss attachment points for large groups of 51 lives and above, effective in late August.

This move allows the large group individual attachment points to be $20,000 per individual, reduced from $25,000 and sets the minimum aggregate attachment point at 110% of expected claims, down from 125%. These changes broaden the levels of stop-loss or excess risk coverage available to self-funded health plans and brings New Jersey’s definition in line with the NAIC Stop Loss Insurance Model Act.
