Flexible Rate Filing Insurance Rate Regulation as Alternative to Incentive Incompatibility in Prior-Approval
AbstractCompetition can be an effective regulator of rates in property-casualty insurance markets. While many states have moved to file-and-use or use-and-file provisions, some have adopted flexible rate-filing regulations (flex-rating) as a means of combining competitive forces with prior-approval regulation. This short note proposes a change to flex-rating so that it can be used to gradually transition a state from prior-approval to file-and-use or use-and-file.
