Elevance Health  (NYSE:ELV) Medical Loss Ratio % Explanation

Medical Loss Ratio % is the percentage of the insurance premium that insurers use to pay for medical claims and activities that improve the quality of care. For example, if an insurer uses 80 cents out of every premium dollar to pay its customers' medical claims and activities that improve the quality of care, the company has a Medical Loss Ratio % of 80%.

Medical claims are medical bills submitted to health insurance carriers and other insurance providers for services rendered to patients by care providers. When you go to the doctor, hospital or other provider, your service generates a bill. This bill then becomes a medical claim to your insurance carrier to process for payment.

Quality of care involves activities such as engaging and involving the patient, so the patient takes ownership in preventive care and in the treatment of diagnosed conditions.
