Data-driven insight. Deep expertise. Transformative innovation. Since 1947, Milliman has delivered intelligent solutions to improve health and financial security.
Milliman has a wide range of experience working with federal, state, and local governments on healthcare, retirement, and more. Milliman has successfully developed and maintained federal contract status under the General Services Administration (GSA), including the schedules GSA Advantage!® and Financial and Business Solutions (FABS). We have also maintained direct contracts with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), Federal Emergency Management Agency, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, Department of Homeland Security, and numerous state and local governments including Medicaid agencies, public employers, state insurance departments, and state-based insurance exchanges under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
We offer unbiased information to health plan decision makers—including local, state, and federal government agencies—to transform their programs and services in response to improving the health of populations they serve, the quality of the care received, and the cost of that care. Our unmatched resources draw from sophisticated modeling, unique visual tools, and broad experience consulting to federal and state agencies to provide insight into driving factors in healthcare costs. We perform actuarial and financial modeling for complex health systems on both the state and federal levels.
We routinely analyze the fiscal impact of proposed legislation, and frequently testify before legislative committees and councils regarding the actuarial implications of proposed changes to benefit plans. We also help agencies successfully interpret, implement, and comply with laws and regulations by providing the requisite advice and counsel. Our services also include budget forecasting, risk management, product development, payment methodology development, and evaluation of health policy.
We are leaders in retirement, helping shape significant changes in the industry. We have experience in contracting with federal and state governments, enabling us to assist agencies with critical and complex issues, including retirement funding, healthcare financing, risk management, and regulatory compliance. We provide pension plan consulting and created the annual Public Pension Funding Index along with quarterly and monthly public pension studies. We also work closely with our clients on policy analysis and compliance. We track and analyze legislation and regulation affecting retirement and also routinely provide agencies—like the PBGC – with analyses of the fiscal impact of proposed retirement-related legislation. Specifically, we provide highly qualified and specialized professional services and personnel resources to support the PBGC’s Office of Benefits Administration (OBA) in calculation of benefits for participants in the PBGC trusteed pension plans. The support is primarily provided to the OBA’s Actuarial Services and Technology Department and its two divisions: the Actuarial Services Division and the Technology and Risk Management Division. We provide the required services in accordance with Title IV of ERISA and applicable PBGC regulations, standards, settlements, policies, and procedures.
We specialize in building and licensing off-the-shelf cost-effective solutions to measure and manage the unique risks associated with guaranteeing or direct origination of credit such as mortgage, small business, and student loans, providing credit enhancement and risk share analytics, and producing credit subsidy estimates and policy analysis for government entities. Milliman also provides risk management support through model development and/or IV&V (independent verification and validation) for quantitative models utilized for budget estimation and policy analysis. We provide industry-leading standards for documentation and transparency of work product while maintaining secure data center and Graham-Leach-Bliley Act compliance. Our professionals help governmental agencies deliver successful results in budget estimates, risk analysis, and policy impact studies.
Modeling has become increasingly climate-aware, and we work with governments to address a variety of climate resilience questions. We perform actuarial redesign of rates, including modernization and improved granularity of rating elements for a government insurance program. We perform regulatory research to understand how to implement innovative solutions that comply with state insurance regulation, and we create and support the associated filings with state regulators. We also advise governmental officials and stakeholders on strategies to mitigate catastrophic risk, educate consumers to enable better decision-making, and promote insurance availability and affordability. Milliman has a deep understanding of catastrophic perils such as wildfire, hurricane, flood, earthquake, and severe/winter storms. Our climate resilience team can help define scenarios, specify and model hazards, and develop options for resilience that offer clear insight into costs, benefits, and uncertainty.
