MLR means More Ludicrous Recalculating

Benefits Guy blogger (and FoIB) Patrick P reports that it’s going to cost one of his clients more in payroll updates and accounting fees than the value of the MLR rebate they actually received.

Here's a taste:
"Taking the Arizona employee we were able to come up with the following calculation of his premium rebate:  Total rebate is $17.85.  Through the end of August they will have already had 18 pay runs of the 26 total.  With 8 remaining pay runs it works out to the employee having a reduction in insurance premium contributions of $2.23 per pay."
Read the whole thing to see how ridiculous the process turns out to be.
