COVID Revenue Will Not Be Included in IRMA Revenue Base
At the June 15 IRMA BOD meeting, the membership concurred with staff’s recommendation that COVID revenue not be included in the IRMA revenue base. After analysis of the issue, in consultation with IRMA’s actuaries, the conclusion was that COVID revenue should not be considered in members’ revenues bases. Members will receive letters next week that requires the revenue base worksheets be completed no later than August 2. The revenue base worksheet requires members to report revenues and submit their CAFRs. This information is critical as we prepare the IRMA 2022 budget.

Another Arbitration Win
This claim involved the Village of Arlington Heights. The loss occurred on January 20, 2021, when a Village ambulance was stopped for a red light at an intersection.

The Allstate driver then veered off and struck another vehicle to his left.
