Risk Bearing Organizations

Regulations passed in 2005 require the DMHC to collect and analyze the financial statements of Risk Bearing Organizations (RBOs) on a quarterly and annual basis. This enables the DMHC to closely monitor the financial solvency of RBOs to keep this important component of the managed care system strong.

An RBO’s financial filings and corrective action plans are submitted via the DMHC’s RBO Financial Reporting System and are reviewed by the DMHC staff for compliance. The DMHC is required to disclose specific information from the RBO financial reports to the public via the DMHC website, such as Quarterly Financial Survey Reports and the Statement of Organization.
