Using Data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners for Health Reform Evaluation

It is essential that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions are evaluated during their implementation in order to facilitate any regulatory modifications that might be needed in the future to ensure that the provisions achieve their intended market outcomes. One set of rich data well-suited for empirical evaluation of marketplace responses to new regulations is collected by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).

This brief provides background on the NAIC, its data collection, the new types of data it’s collecting for health reform monitoring purposes, and the research opportunities (both within and across states) afforded by this new data.
