PA/MGA Risk Sharing

Posted at 1:00 AM ET

Program managers may also manage the performance of their programs through the pursuit of risk sharing on behalf of their PA/MGA partners. As we saw in past surveys, not all respondents require risk sharing.

Destruction caused by catastrophes often unfolds due to inadequate construction practices or land use planning. The likely response to these events is to strive to “build back better,” in part by addressing the mistakes of the past. Unfortunately, communities that embrace this challenge often find that they lack the financial resources for it and ambitious reconstruction projects lose momentum.

It has been a little over four years since the enactment and subsequent implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, more widely known as the ACA. The impact on the insurance industry as a whole has been tremendous, but it has not been shared equally among the industry subsectors.
