Actuarial Value

Actuarial Value

In health insurance, the estimated percentage of a typical policyholder's medical bills that an individual plan is expected to pay. A policyholder may receive less than the actuarial value in coverage if he/she has few medical expenses (because the bills may not exceed the deductible) and may receive more than the actuarial value if he/she has numerous expenses. The actuarial value is considered a good baseline for the coverage most policyholders will receive most of the time. The Affordable Care Act of 2010 in the United States requires health insurance providers to calculate and publicize the actuarial value of each plan.
