Illinois Compiled Statutes 215 ILCS 105 Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan Act. Section 7.1

    (215 ILCS 105/7.1)

    Sec. 7.1. Premiums.

    (a) The Board shall establish premium rates for coverage as provided in subsection (d) of this Section.

    (b) Separate schedules of premium rates based on sex, age, geographical location, and benefit plan shall apply for individual risks.

    (c) The Board may provide for separate premium rates for optional family coverage for the spouse or one or more dependents who reside together in any eligible individual's or eligible person's household. The rates for each spouse or dependent who qualifies to be covered under this optional family coverage shall be such percentage of the applicable individual Plan rate as the Board, in accordance with appropriate actuarial principles, shall establish.

    (d) The Board, with the assistance of the Director and in accordance with appropriate actuarial principles, shall determine a standard risk rate by using the average rates that individual standard risks in this State are charged by at least 5 of the largest health insurance issuers providing individual health insurance coverage to residents of Illinois that is substantially similar to the coverage offered by the Plan. In determining the average rate or charges of those health insurance issuers, the rates charged by those issuers shall be actuarially adjusted to determine the rate or charge that would have been charged for benefits similar to those provided by the Plan. The standard risk rates shall be established using reasonable actuarial techniques and shall reflect anticipated claims experience, expenses, and other appropriate risk factors for such coverage.

    (e) Rates for Plan coverage shall not be less than 125% nor more than 150% of rates established as applicable for individual standard risks pursuant to subsection (d).
