Most U.S. states require that contracted managed care organizations (MCOs) file annual statements with state insurance regulators. The statements are typically based on a standard reporting structure developed and maintained by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), with prescribed definitions enabling comparisons across reporting entities. This report provides a summary of benchmarking financial metrics for the calendar year 2013 based on these statements, including medical loss, administrative loss, underwriting, and risk-based capital ratios. The target audience includes state Medicaid agencies and MCO personnel responsible for reviewing and monitoring the financial results of risk-based managed care programs.
