Default Fall 2016 Q#6e

why the question gives us the following two information that are not used at all in the solution:
the avg months of enrollment for Individual products is 10, and SG is 11 months.

not sure SOA's purpose of including these.

just did this exam this AM: I feel like you dont need any of the 2017 enrollment for the problem. I just converted the 2014 values to PMPM and trended them to 2017. It just asks for the MLR, not the required rebate.

That problem is kinda a mess. If you actually do all the calcs, it takes forever.

Edit: After reading the 'solution', I see they wanted us to use the 2017 enrollment to calculated a weighted average of Ind/Small group plans.
