The emergence of the hard market, and the disruption of the long-term care industry by the coronavirus pandemic, will likely lead to increased risk retention group activity in the long-term care subsector of the Healthcare sector. Although there are currently 18 active risk retention groups serving the nursing home and long-term care business sector, the first of those groups didn’t form until 2003 when Caregivers United Liability Insurance Co., RRG; LTC Risk Retention Group, Inc. (a different group than the recently added LTC Insurance Company RRG, LLC); and PELICAN Ins. (A Reciprocal RRG) were all formed.

The data was pulled from the respective additions of the Risk Retention Group Directory & Guide which was first published in 1991 and profiles active risk retention groups each year.
