• H01 – there is no change in base rates
• H02 – a reduction in base rates
• H03 – an increase in base rates
• H04 and H05 – an increase in base rates
Additionally, in line with State Insurance Regulatory Authority’s Premium Principle 1: Premiums are fair and reflective of risk, we will be introducing a maximum premium cap of $340,000 per certificate to prevent the cost of insurance exceeding the risk amount insured.
