Since implementing historic changes last year that modernized our governance structure, ACA is better equipped to leverage the knowledge and talents of our members to help chart the course for the association’s future. It is also our goal to add greater transparency to our governance process by informing you and other organizations and individuals in the profession of opportunities to lead with ACA.

Hospitals and Their Captive Insurance Companies Making Millions

While hospitals seek to maintain an image of service and trust, many are investing large sums in the Cayman Islands and illegally profiting.  For example, three prominent New York City hospitals continue to make about $64 million this year off a revamped version of an insurance maneuver that New York regulators last year characterized as a hidden scheme to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars back to the hospitals.

New York's state Department of Financial Services, or DFS, found that the professional liability insurer Hospitals Insurance Co. illegally kept secret the fact that its offshore captive insurance company soaked up more than $160 million in premium payments that yielded more than $200 million in investment income over a two-decade period, all while avoiding domestic regulation.

Despite the violations, which came to light in 2017,  the latest financial filings indicate the hospitals have kept a version of the operation running.  The hospitals involved obtain supplemental medical malpractice insurance through the state of New York. But they effectively devised a way to convert that coverage into cash through a series of reinsurance transactions that funneled the money to their Cayman Islands-based captive insurance company at the heart of the scheme. They used the money to obtain cheaper insurance and pay dividends, according to the settlement agreement.
