Health coverage filing instructions

Who files and what needs to be filed?

You must file all rates and forms prior to use if you're a disability insurer, Health Care Service Contractor (HCSC), or Health Maintenance Organization (HMO).

May 5, 2017 is the deadline for filing rates, forms and networks with the Office of the Insurance Commissioner for individual market and small group market health plans and for stand-alone dental plans that offer the pediatric essential health benefit for plan year 2018.

Student health plans issued to higher education institutions are individual market health plans and have the same filing deadline of May 5, 2017 for the 2017-18 school year.

System for Electornic Rate and Form Filing (SERFF) binders are also due on May 5, 2017 for individual market and small group market health plans and for stand-alone dental plans that offer the pediatric essential health benefit. SERFF binders are not required for student health plans.

Filings received after May 5, 2017 will be rejected without review.
