DALLAS (BP) -- 2021 has witnessed hospitals and ICUs filled to capacity, increased claims related to COVID-19 testing and care, significant increases in pharmacy claims, as well as additional care that was delayed due to COVID-19 isolation in 2020. All have contributed to drive insurance rates to rise for 2022 throughout the United States.

But in many ways, it’s a world away and part of the culmination of a journey the Lord Himself orchestrated.
