Major Medical Health Insurance Rate Information

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires states to provide certain information about "threshold" (15% or greater) rate increase filings, and to provide a way for the public to comment on the requested threshold rate increase filings.  This page contains instructions for you to access the rate filing information for plan year 2020 and to provide public comments on open threshold rate filings to the Department.
