AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Curative, a leading health services company that recently launched a new employer-based $0 cost-sharing health plan in Texas, has received an A- (Excellent) financial strength rating affirmation and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (Long-Term ICR) of “a-” (Excellent) from the global credit rating agency AM Best.
“The ratings reflect Curative’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as very strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile, and appropriate enterprise risk management,” according to AM Best, as noted in their press release.
The ratings reflect AM Best’s expectation, based on Curative’s business plan, that the company will maintain its risk-adjusted capitalization at the assessed level of strongest, as measured by Best Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR). “AM Best also expects Curative's capital to remain more than sufficient to support the company’s future business plans,” according to the AM Best release.
“We are proud that AM Best has recognized Curative’s financial stability and our ability to succeed with its Excellent A- rating. Curative is well-capitalized and well-positioned to transform health insurance - and health care - in Texas and across the country,” said Fred Turner, co-founder and CEO of Curative. “To further demonstrate our commitment to this venture, Curative Inc. infused $100 million in capital to augment and strengthen its Curative Insurance Company subsidiary. Curative is here to stay.”
The AM Best release also stated: “In addition, Curative Inc. is committed to providing a significant investment toward building technical capabilities to support the innovative business model at Curative. Curative plans to maintain operating results around breakeven as the book of business grows over the next several years. An enterprise risk management structure has been established and is expected to evolve alongside the complexities and risks of the business. AM Best will monitor Curative’s membership growth, financial metrics, and deviations from the business plan.”
Curative’s new health plan represents its next phase of growth and is the primary focus of the company following its successes as one of the nation’s largest COVID-19 testing companies.
