BerryDunn is a full service assurance, tax and consulting firm serving clients in New England and across the U.S. for over 40 years. Our experts provide services to a wide array of clients from local and state governments to healthcare, not-for-profit, higher education, commercial, financial services, high tech, and more.

Actuarial and underwriting services: Helping employers manage and mitigate risk while providing optimal health benefits to employees.

Rising healthcare and other benefit costs can put extreme pressure on health plan sponsors. Your business runs on the strength of your team—you want to provide great coverage and wellness benefits for your employees, but you also need to manage your balance sheet.

BerryDunn’s actuarial and underwriting services team helps chief financial officers, human resources officers, insurance brokers, and benefit trust administrators manage and mitigate financial risk while optimizing health and wellness benefits for their teams. We work collaboratively with clients, guiding them through the myriad of carrier offerings, product choices, financial arrangements and unique benefit plans available in our changing healthcare landscape.

Our team possesses a unique mix of actuarial and underwriting experience to help large group employers with their health plans. Because of our deep expertise across both public and private healthcare, clients turn to BerryDunn to assist with:

  • Negotiating with insurance carriers
  • Analyzing healthcare cost trends
  • Designing and pricing health insurance benefits
  • Estimating unpaid claim liabilities
  • Actuarial certification of healthcare liabilities
  • Premium rate development and allocation to subdivisions
  • Benefit relativity analysis and modeling, including high deductible plan reviews
  • Performing disruption analysis for benefit changes
  • Modeling health insurance risk and the impact of healthcare reform
  • Pharmacy and specialty pharmacy analysis
  • Value-based contracting and accountable care organization (ACO) options
  • Self-Insured working rate and claim projections
  • Stop loss guidance

In addition to the above, we have extensive experience helping plan sponsors meet their pharmacy benefit plan certification requirements. Services include Medicare retiree drug subsidy attestations, actuarial equivalence testing, and creditable coverage testing.

BerryDunn would value the opportunity to be your health and wellness benefits plan partner.
