The Predictive Power of Prescription Records in Health Underwriting

This presentation will focus on the use of de-identified prescription records in health underwriting. We plan to cover the following topics: data sources, de-identification process, and the predictive power of the Rx based risk score and improvement in manual rating accuracy. We will also discuss new markets / GRx innovations - self-funded products, PEO's, and associations.
