  1. Health Plan Administrative Costs Trends: Blue Cross Blue Shield‏

    Messrs. and Mesdames:

    Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans administrative costs controllable by management increased at a median rate of 1.1% PMPM. But, with the additional taxes associated with the Affordable Care Act, costs increased by 18.4%. Corporate Services costs declined and Account and Membership Administration grew only modestly.

    These results are excerpted from the Blue Cross Blue Shield edition of the 2015 Sherlock Expense Evaluation Report. The results are based on our detailed surveys of 2014 operating parameters of 16 Blue Cross Blue Shield licensees, comprising 47% of the U.S. total. The licensees represent approximately 55-60% of the membership of single state Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans.
