Default EOM Task 2

Is anyone working on this? It appeared to be a simple straight forward task but I ended up with a very unreasonable answer. Going to go and check my calculations but anyone else get an answer very different from the 838k?

Was anyone able to duplicate their calculation of 838,000 in savings? I fear I am missing something.

What adjustments are everyone using to calculate the potential savings? I don't think the average annual salary comes into play and I assume the incurred claims don't need to be adjusted for discounts/utilization. I only used the age/gender factors and I'm getting about $103K.

The answer I got is similar to that amount. I think the average annual salary information is useful for other parts of Task 2.

You can duplicate the $838k from the following.

1. Take the difference between the overall PPO and EPO claims PEPM.(i.e. savings per month if one enrollee switch from PPO to EPO)

2. Scale the savings to 12 months.

3. Scale the yearly savings per enrollee to whatever the expected enrollees switching.


I got $98k savings after factoring in the age/sex factors (and location of course).

esenawiaT -

Following your steps 1-3, I get about $300k. Now, If I multiply the result of steps 1-2 by 1% of 60k (employees) instead of 1% of the 21,500 PPO employees, that gets me to the $838k. So how did you get the $838k by following steps 1-3?
