Pushing the Envelope:
State Insurance Regulator Authority to Address Healthcare Affordability


March 16, 2018
2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET


Surprisingly, insurance regulators are rarely explicitly empowered to use affordability as a factor in the annual evaluation of proposed health insurance rates, known as “rate review.” Insurers, however—with their teams of actuaries, claims of innovation, unparalleled access to claims data, and knowledge of provider contracted rates—are well positioned to address America’s healthcare affordability crisis. State should consider granting additional authority to their regulators to press insurers to take on cost containment and quality efforts, as well as provide data and reports that could inform policymakers about local cost drivers.

In this webinar we’ll learn about two states’ efforts to push these boundaries.
