Health Insurance Exchange Compare

Benefit design and cost sharing information for health plans in all 50 states


Data on marketplace plans from every state.

The Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) Compare dataset provides information on benefit design and cost sharing for health plans offered in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Specifically, the dataset includes data on premiums, network composition, deductibles, out-of-pocket limits, and copayment and coinsurance amounts.

This data, updated May 1, 2014, was collected from state and federal government-sponsored exchange websites, and will provide perspective on consumer choice and affordability under the ACA.


The HIX Compare dataset is a collaboration between Breakaway Policy Strategies and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Breakaway Policy Strategies is a health policy firm based in Washington, D.C. that provides strategic advice, research and analysis to a range of health care stakeholders. In addition to providing the publicly available dataset, Breakaway Policy Strategies will provide reports and briefs that highlight key findings and implications from their data.
