The report lists three groups:
Large Claim Volume: Those insurers with a claim volume of 400 or more paid claims in the previous calendar year.
Medium Claim Volume: Those insurers with a claim volume of less than 400 but at least 65 paid claims in the previous calendar year.
Small Claim Volume: Those insurers with a claim volume of less than 65 paid claims in the previous year, but at least 65 claims in the previous three-year period.
Insurers are listed by NAIC number and name or as a named self-insured employer. Performance data will be listed for individual insurers, not combined for the same corporate holding company or group, and both the assessment of performance and the enforcement proceedings under DWD 80.02(3) will be made for each individual company insuring the risk.
Insurers who are the best performers are listed first for the individual indicators. Rankings for insurers is based on volume. For large insurers, it is quarterly data, for medium, it is year-to-date and for small, it is 3-year.
