Recent regulatory filings showed that our small group, MCRs are among the lowest in California, helped by the rapid growth of Tailored Network Products. To further support this, if we put prior period development back into the proper period, we see year-over-year improvement in the overall California commercial MCR for the first half of 2012 even with the large group headwinds. We believe our success with Tailored Network products and in small and mid markets continues to meet the customer needs for affordability, while producing solid margins and growth. The steps we’ve outlined will serve to strengthen our California commercial franchise.Let’s next review California Medicaid. The Medicaid MCR was up by 460 basis points sequentially, primarily due to the SPD population. As we said in the past, we’ve been booking the SPD members at a high MCR. As we completed the enrollment process and the experience with the new book matured, it is now cleared that the MCR for these members was greater than a 100%.
