Earlier in 2020, Peoplecare postponed its annual 2020 premium increase for 6 months to help members through the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, and we are proud that we have been able to help our members through $2.3 million in premium savings during this period. We had a modest increase to our premiums in October 2020.
