Forward-looking Statements
 
This Annual Report on Form 10-K, and other information we provide from time-to-time, contains certain “forward-looking” statements as that term is defined by Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). All statements regarding our expected future financial position, membership, results of operations or cash flows, our continued performance improvements, our ability to service our debt obligations and refinance our debt obligations, our ability to finance growth opportunities, our ability to respond to changes in government regulations and similar statements including, without limitation, those containing words such as “believes,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “estimates,” “intends,” “plans” and other similar expressions are forward-looking statements.
 
Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results in future periods to differ materially from those projected or contemplated in the forward-looking statements as a result of, but not limited to, the following factors:
 
  •  our inability to manage medical costs;
 
  •  our inability to operate new products and markets at expected levels, including, but not limited to, profitability, membership and targeted service standards;
 
  •  local, state and national economic conditions, including their effect on the premium rate increase process and timing of payments;
 
  •  the effect of government regulations and changes in regulations governing the healthcare industry;
 
  •  changes in Medicaid and Medicare payment levels and methodologies;
 
  •  increased use of services, increased cost of individual services, pandemics, epidemics, the introduction of new or costly treatments and technology, new mandated benefits, insured population characteristics and seasonal changes in the level of healthcare use;
 
  •  our ability to maintain and increase membership levels;
 
  •  our ability to enter into new markets or remain in our existing markets;
 
  •  changes in market interest rates or any disruptions in the credit markets;
 
  •  our ability to maintain compliance with all minimum capital requirements;
 
  •  liabilities and other claims asserted against us;
