All you ever wanted to know about the MLR

Previous blog entries (listed below) introduced the Medical Loss Ratio (MLR) and it's use (or abuse) in the Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148, as amended)... Medical Loss Ratio Requirements Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA): Issues for Congress (a 21-page CRS PDF) provides an updated and in-depth look look at the MLR - its various components and how they inter-relate; the calculation of the MLR; its reporting requirements; temporary waivers to the rules that have been approved for various states; the rebate requirement; and finally the issues of brokers' commissions, high deductible plans, and the MLR for non-profit insurers... In short, all you ever wanted to know about the MLR but were afraid to ask!
