Sessional Research Event: Extending the Critical Path. A report from the Critical Illness Definitions and Geographical Variations Working Party

17 February 2014 16:30 to 19:00

Critical Illness cover is a mainstay of the UK health insurance marketplace. Credible insured experience continues to emerge for the major conditions but this does not help us to understand the minor conditions, changes in definitions over time or socio-economic variations in experience. Members of the Critical Illness Definitions and Geographical Variations Working Party will present the analysis of a dataset of seriatim NHS hospital records. Although the presentation may be of interest to actuaries who are just starting to price Critical Illness cover for the first time, we believe that experienced pricing actuaries will find its conclusions interesting.

The presentation is based on a recently published paper which is now available.

Speakers: Peter Banthorpe, Adele Groyer, Jennifer Loftus and Matthew Smith
