Call for Volunteers: Health Economics Working Party

02/15/2011 — A new working party is being formed and needs volunteers!

The Health Economics Working Party will research the impact of health care costs on casualty insurance coverages. Through the preparation of a research paper, or perhaps a series of papers that addresses the impact of medical cost drivers on the prices of casualty coverages (e.g., auto liability, medical professional liability, workers compensation), this Working Party will educate the membership and promote the CAS’s profile related to health care issues. A longer term goal would be to address behavioral issues of casualty carriers in response to U.S. health care reform.

Working parties bring together a group of interested professionals to focus on a specific research project over the short time frame of about one year. All interested researchers are invited to participate, CAS member or not. If you are interested in participating in this working party, or if you have any questions, please contact Karen Sonnet at ksonnet@casact.org.
