Methodology for Composite Rate Calculations: Cost projections are based on the actual costs of the last full fiscal year, incremented forknown and/or anticipated changes in costs. A primary cost driver is identified for each component of the rate and is used consistentlyfor allocation of actual and projected cost to benefit rate groups. There are two primarycost drivers – salary dollars and benefit-eligible headcounts, which are expressed interms of full-time equivalents (FTEs). OPERS, STRS and most of the smaller benefitcomponents are allocated to benefit-eligible rate groups based on salary dollars; healthcare costs and employee/dependent tuition are allocated based on benefit-eligible FTEs. To ensure consistency in the calculation of composite rates, we use FY2020 actualFTEs and FY2020 actual salaries, incremented across all rate groups for guideline wageincreases. The costs to be recovered are variable costs (as covered salary dollars andbenefit-eligible FTEs go up or down, the benefit costs and associated composite ratecharges to the departments go up or down accordingly). Employee contribution rates for health coverage will not be set until Autumn Semesterand are effective January 1, 2022. The current composite-rate calculations assume thatthe employee’s share of projected costs will equal employee contributions. To the extentthat employee contributions are set below their projected share of health care costs, theadditional costs would need to be recovered via the composite rates charged to thedepartments. A complicating factor in the rate-setting process is the multiple “years” associated withemployee benefits. University budgets and Office of Sponsored Programs rates are on aJuly-June fiscal year, salary increases and University/Health System composite benefitrates are on a September-August year, and medical benefit plan designs and employeecontribution levels are on a calendar (January-December) year. We need to predict, byFebruary 2021, what rates will be required to cover costs and provide sufficient benefitcash balances for the benefit “year” ending August 31, 2022.University/Health System Rates vs. OSP Sponsored Program Rates: University/Health System rates are determined by OSU; OSP rates are proposed byOSU and are subject to negotiation with the federal government (DHHS). For University/Health System rates, OSU has discretion to pursue rate stability,particularly related to maintaining targeted cash balances and amortizing over/underrecoveries over multiple periods. For OSP rates, the federal government requires fullamortization of over/under-recovery in next even/odd year (for example, all over/underrecoveries for FY2020 must be incorporated in the FY2022 rate calculation). The lock-step amortization of under/over-recoveries under the federal rate-setting rulesincreases the likelihood of abrupt increases or decreases in OSP benefit rates.4

Definitions for Rate Groups:University faculty and staff are divided into the following groups for benefit rates:Faculty – Includes nine-month, 12-month and clinical faculty members eligible for full benefitpackage, including retirement, subsidized health care, life insurance, disability and tuitionbenefits. For Health System, the faculty rate group consists primarily of medical residents.Combined Staff – Includes administrative and professional (Unclassified) staff, non-exempt(Classified Civil Service) staff and post-doctoral researchers eligible for full benefit package,including retirement, subsidized health care, life insurance, disability and tuition benefits.Non-Student Specials – Includes lecturers and part-time staff who are not eligible for fullbenefit package (rate consists primarily of retirement contributions). This rate is also applied toovertime pay for unclassified and CCS staff, supplemental compensation and off-duty quartersupport.Students – Includes hourly student employees who are not eligible for benefits (rate consistsprimarily of required Medicare, workers compensation and unemployment contributions). Thisrate is also applied to additional pay that is not eligible compensation for retirementcontributions.Graduate Associates – Includes graduate teaching, research and administrative associateseligible for an 85% employer subsidy on student health insurance coverage (full-time studentshave the option to choose to be exempt from retirement contributions, and most choose to beexempt). Tuition benefits are provided to graduate associates through separate feeauthorization charges to the departments.5

The absolute minimum/floor for benefit cash balances is an amount equal to the full-accrualliabilities for each component of the benefit rate. At December 31, 2020, the University’s benefit plans had cash balances of 203 million, which isapproximately 101 million higher than our target cash balances.8

Composite Benefit Rates Administrative Position Review ProcessBackgroundThe Ohio State University (OSU) offers a comprehensive benefit package to meet its employee’s needs.The comprehensive benefit package is evaluated annually and associated costs are reviewed. These costsfor benefits provided are largely subsidized by the university, with employees also paying contributions tocover the cost of benefits not paid by the employer.On an annual basis, the benefit costs paid by the employee and subsidized by OSU are reviewed. Theportion that is subsidized by OSU is funded through utilizing composite rates that are charged to each collegeand units against their payroll dollars.The composite benefit rates are reviewed and updated on an annual basis through the fiscal budgetingprocess. As a part of that review process, positions for staff who are charged against the benefit funds arereviewed for appropriateness so that their cost can be included in the composite rate calculation.This annual position review process was created collaboratively between the Office of Human Resources andBusiness & Finance. The purpose is to ensure that only appropriate expenses are charged to benefit fundsbased on their direct correlation to administering the university’s benefit plan offerings.ProcessThe process for reviewing positions charged against the benefit funds consists of: Identifying benefit staff positions that relate to day-to-day benefit administration operations andcomprise over 80% of the employee’s job responsibilities. Identifying leadership positions that lend their oversight and strategic guidance to the planestablishment, governance review process, and President’s Cabinet and Board of Trustee updates. Compiling the positions, FTE, and salaries identified through the above steps and comparing to priorfiscal year. Meet and review compiled data and historical trends and provide information, as requested, torespond to any variances in the year over year comparisons.NOTE: In October 2019, Senate Fiscal recommended approval of three additional benefits administrationpositions to support retirement compliance and the Workday and ServiceNow implementations. Asignificant portion of the additional costs will be offset by the vacant AVP position. Total estimated FTE forFY2021 is 61.2 (down 1.3 FTE from prior year).12

NOTE: The subcommittee considered three scenarios for accelerating the return of surplus benefit funds to colleges and VP units.Under Scenario 1, the 2021-2022 rates would be reduced to return 32 million, with an accompanying cash transfer to return anadditional 24 million. Under Scenario 2, the 2021-2022 rates would be reduced to return 20 million, with an accompanying cashtransfer to return an additional 36 million. Under Scenario 3, the 2021-2022 rates would be set as calculated (no reduction in rates),with an accompanying cash transfer to return 56 million. The subcommittee recommended Scenario 2.The Ohio State UniversitySummary of Current and Projected Benefit Ratesthrough Benefit Year Ending August 31, 20252020-2021Current Rates*2021-2022 Scenario 1Return 32Mvia 2021-2022Rates and 24Mvia Cash Transfers2021-2022 Scenario 2Return 20Mvia 2021-2022Rates and 36Mvia Cash Transfers2021-2022 Scenario 32021-2022 Ratesas Calculated;Return 56Mvia Cash Transfers2022-2023Projected Rates**2023-2024Projected Rates**2024-2025Projected Rates**General UniversityFacultyCombined StaffSpecialsStudentsGraduate 4.7%4.7%4.8%Health SystemFacultyCombined StaffSpecialsStudentsGraduate %11.6%Faculty Group PracticeClinical Appointments (excl. retirement)4.3%4.5%4.5%4.6%* Current benefit rates are reduced to return surplus benefits cash to units.** Preliminary estimates, based on 2% AMCP and 4.5% medical trend.

The Ohio State UniversityAdditional Information on Medical Trend Rate AssumptionsUpdated February 8, 2021Gross medical and Rx claims for the first six months of FY2021 were flat compared to the first sixmonths of FY2020 (approximately 198 million). However, the July and August 2020 medical claimswere unusually low, reflecting the suspension of elective surgeries due to COVID. If we use July2019 and August 2019 figures to normalize the YTD FY2021 claims figures, the total Fiscal YTDclaims trend would be approximately 3%.The Office of Human Resources works with its actuarial consultants (Aon) to develop medical and Rxtrend rate assumptions which incorporate both industry-wide and OSU-specific factors. Per Aon, the2020 medical claims data are unreliable for future projections. For budgeting, Aon recommendstrending 2019 medical data forward to 2021. For Rx, it is more reasonable to base projections on2020 claims data because Rx claims were not significantly impacted by COVID.Aon Recommended Medical Trend Rates for OSU:The following summary of OSU-specific trends reflects provider rate increases that were approvedlast year by the OSU Health Plan board. The provider rate increases for 2021-2023 containguaranteed increases, as well as the opportunity to earn additional increases by meeting establishedquality metrics.Period2019 – 20202020 – 20212021 – 2022Medical Trend(apply to preCOVID claimsexperience)4.0%5.3%4.9%Rx Trend(apply to 2020 claimsexperience)13.2%13.0%13.0% (assume sameas prior year)Total (Blended)Medical Rx Trend5.8%6.8%6.5%Similar to last year, when Aon was recommending a 6% trend assumption, we are reducing theirrecommended trend rate of 6.5% down to 4.5% for our benefit rate calculations. This, in addition tothe proposed return of funds to the units and faculty/staff, is intended to reduce the surplus cash.16
