Triple-S Management Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2008 Results; Board Approves Share Repurchase Authorization of up to $40 Million

2008, to 88.6 percent. The Medicare business experienced an overall year-over-year increase in utilization trends and had a higher concentration of dual-eligible members. Partially offsetting the rise in the Medicare MLR was a decline in the Reform MLR. The Commercial MLR increased by 230 basis points. However, if we consider the effect of reserve developments in both periods, the MLR actually decreased by 180 basis points.

Operating expenses rose $4.9 million, or 13.9 percent, to $40.2 million, compared with the same period last year. The increase is primarily attributable to the higher volume, particularly within the Medicare business. The segment's operating expense ratio decreased 30 basis points, to 10.2 percent.
