Alaska Statutes Sec. 21.18.080 - Reserve Standards for Health Insurance

(a) The adequacy of health insurance reserves must be determined based on the sum of policy reserves determined under AS 21.18.082 , claim reserves determined under AS 21.18.084 , and premium reserves determined under AS 21.18.086 .

(b) Reserve adequacy must be determined by a prospective gross premium valuation. For policies in force, in a claims status, or in a continuation of benefits status on the valuation date, the gross premium valuation must take into account the present value of all expected benefits unpaid, all expected expenses unpaid, and all unearned or expected premiums, including expected future premium increases.

(c) A gross premium valuation must be performed whenever there is an indication that reserves and future premiums may be insufficient to cover future claims for a particular block of policies or for the entire health insurance block. If a reserve inadequacy is determined to exist, the loss must be immediately recognized and reserves increased to account for the inadequacy. The increased reserves will be considered minimum reserves.
