Milliman, S&P to publish health care trend index

Quoth Business Insurance:

The indices will attempt to reflect per capita changes in total allowed claims costs incurred by patients—through their copayments—and health care benefit plans for services provided by hospitals and physicians.

Sounds like an index to cover increases in ground-up claim costs, instead of measuring rate changes.

When launched, details will be at http://www.standardandpoors.com/indices
