A method used in arriving at an insurance or reinsurance rate and premium
for a policy period based on the loss experience of a prior period. Schedule
credits, experience modification, and individual risk rating modifications are
factors used in prospective rating, whereas losses incurred during the policy
period have no effect on final premium. Guaranteed cost plans, with or without
a dividend, are examples of prospectively rated insurance plans.
