In thinking through program staff costs - are the metrics for the cost analysis compiled by a health actuary? At what cost?

The actuaries focused on the cost base using TennCare data and the projected impact on that cost base (impact on total cost of care across multiple categories like inpatient encounters for the identified population). The cost of the actuarial analysis was five figures.The program staff costs were set and analyzed by the project partners using GHHI budget tools. The costs and the savings estimates from the actuaries were incorporated into an economic model developed by GHHI.
