The April 23 rd , 2020 Health Actuarial (B) Task Force (HATF) meeting included multiple presentations
regarding the potential impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the health insurance marketplace.
The meeting provided an opportunity for members of HATF, interested regulators, and Interested
Parties to gain perspective on considerations that may impact the 2021 Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act (ACA) rate review, and ask questions. Following that meeting, HATF sent out an
Excel template titled “ACA 2021 Coronavirus Rate Review Guideline – May 15 th .xlsx” (the Guideline)
which contained an overview of considerations regarding COVID-19 that may impact the review of 2021
rates. The Guideline is not prescriptive but rather provides potential considerations and possible
resources. The Guideline does NOT include estimate values or impacts.
RRC appreciates the opportunity to offer our comments. Should you have any questions, we would be
glad to discuss our comments with you and the HATF members.
