New Market Conditions Emerging Data Source: TransRe Unmistakable trend to higher severity evident in the broader industry Not evident in average ProAssurance paid losses Prompting greater conservatism in ProAssurance reserves on larger risks where deeper pockets may have been created by consolidation Greater conservatism also translates into higher current year loss picks Higher severity has invariably led to higher frequency which contributes to a cycle turn in healthcare professional liability 11 9 8 11 5 8 13 8 7 3 6 9 11 5 7 6 13 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 2017 Verdicts at or Above $25 Million Matched the Levels of the Last Crisis 23 30 34 23 20 28 29 31 29 20 21 33 37 20 27 26 36 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 2017 Verdicts at or Above $10 Million Were The Second Highest This Century

 


New Market Conditions Emerging Data Source: TransRe Greater uncertainty in the market creates an environment where ProAssurance outperforms due to superior financial strength and operational expertise Perceived trends have led two commercial carriers to exit all or part of their healthcare professional liability business Downgrades from A.

Segment Strategic Review Specialty P & C, August 2018

 


The question is cost vs. care—we can deliver more care than we can afford Restructuring is producing profound changes in healthcare The U.S. spends a greater proportion of GDP on healthcare and the percentage is increasing How Healthcare Costs Will Force Changes in Our Market Healthcare Spending as a Percentage of GDP (1995-2014) Healthcare Cost control remains the real driver of change in the delivery of care Care being pushed down to lower cost providers Current spending levels are unsustainable The Affordable Care Act is a sideshow that does not address rising costs No perfect model for healthcare delivery has emerged http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SH.XPD.TOTL.ZS 6% 8% 10% 12% 14% 16% 18% 95 96 97 98 99 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 United States France Germany Canada Japan EU Global Australia UK

 


How Healthcare Costs Will Force Changes in Our Market Adapted from HBR: The Strategy that Will Fix Healthcare Greater reliance on a value-based payment system Providers shouldering more of the risk of costs Drives the need for efficiency in order to optimize limited resources Changing models of reimbursement Greater reliance on technology Increasing focus on efficiency to maximize care-per-spend OVERARCHING TRENDS Larger groups/systems will have more leverage with payers Financial pressures are eliminating small groups and solo practitioners Patients will be forced to make choices as they shoulder more costs Payment for Volume (Fee-for-Service) Payment for Value & Outcome (Value-Based Care) Provider Centric Patient Centric Physician/Specialty-Driven Coordination of Care

The HCPL Industry Traditional practices are fading Excess capital is being used to try to maintain market share at the expense of a sustainable future Capital & geographic constraints challenge many small insurers Few companies are able to respond to new coverage demands from emerging delivery models Strategy Update: ProAssurance Can Meet the Challenges Healthcare Cost control remains the real driver of change in the delivery of care Care being pushed down to lower cost providers Current spending levels are unsustainable The Affordable Care Act is a sideshow that does not address rising costs No perfect model for healthcare delivery has emerged ProAssurance Maintaining discipline & profitability Expanding product lines through strategic M&A and internal innovation Covering the full spectrum of healthcare Addressing all avenues of distribution Created a sustainable competitive advantage Managing capital effectively The Fork in the Road For traditional HCPL companies, there can be no status quo given the inevitable evolution of their customer base

Lloyd’s Strategy Review ProAssurance now provides 62% of capital to Syndicate 1729 (increased from 58% at 1/1/18) Small ownership interest in the underlying underwriting arm, Dale Underwriting Partners $200 million capital commitment is best viewed as an investment Early stage costs elevated but in-line with expectations Expenses leveling as operations mature Provides potential exposure to global professional liability opportunities Also relevant to Medmarc for medical technology and products liability as more testing and development moves offshore

 


Key Lloyd’s Opportunities Special Purpose Arrangement (SPA) within Syndicate 1729 began writing business in 2018 Syndicate 6131 Four experienced underwriters with established books of business prior to joining Planned premium is $22 million Business focus is contingency & specialty property Continuing success in international healthcare professional liability from the highly-experienced underwriting team that joined Syndicate 1729 in March 2016 Extensive experience in Canada, Australia, South America & Middle East

Forward Looking Statements Non-GAAP Measures This presentation contains Forward Looking Statements and other information designed to convey our projections and expectations regarding future results. There are a number of factors which could cause our actual results to vary materially from those projected in this presentation. The principal risk factors that may cause these differences are described in various documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, such as our Current Reports on Form 8-K, and our regular reports on Forms 10-Q and 10-K, particularly in “Item 1A, Risk Factors.” Please review this presentation in conjunction with a thorough reading and understanding of these risk factors. This presentation contains Non-GAAP measures, and we may reference Non-GAAP measures in our remarks and discussions with investors. The primary Non-GAAP measure we reference is operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure that is widely used to evaluate performance within the insurance sector. In calculating operating income, we have excluded the after-tax effects of net realized investment gains or losses and guaranty fund assessments or recoupments that do not reflect normal operating results. We believe operating income presents a useful view of the performance of our insurance operations, but should be considered in conjunction with net income computed in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these measures to GAAP measures is available in our regular reports on Forms 10-Q and 10-K and in our latest quarterly news release, all of which are available in the Investor Relations section of our website, Investor.ProAssurance.com.
