3.1 Running New Reports
New reports may be run at any time and are available immediately. There is no limit to the number of reports that may be created.
To run a new report:
- Click the Analysis and Reporting tab at the top of the page.
- A list of recent reports is displayed with links for creating a new Claims Review Report, Trend Analysis Report, Risk Analysis Report, Month End Report, or Plan Model:
Claims Review is typically run yearly, quarterly, or monthly and provides an overall analysis of plan activity for a specific group and time period. Trend Analysis provides information similar to Claims Review broken down quarter over quarter and is most often run over the entire claim set for a specific group.
Risk Analysis is typically ran for the Group's stop loss contract period and includes a specific dollar threshold amount - usually 50% of the current specific amount.
Plan Models analyze modified plan designs by simulating historical claims activity.
Month End is typically ran by plan year. It provides detailed plan activity and enrollment for various coverage areas.
