January – CID publishes notices in January each year with instructions to carriers on their operating rates for the following calendar year. See Bulletin HC-81-22 Health Insurance Rate Filing Submission Guidelines.
Spring – During the spring months carriers collect data from previous years to use in planning for the following year.
July – At the beginning of July, the carriers submit their health records and CID for the next year. Likewise, CID’s Life & Health (L&H) unit and L&H experts review the inventory during the summer months and write to carriers with any questions they have about filters. All documents and correspondence are publicly available and posted on the CID website.
August – CID holds a meeting to inform the public and the carriers about the stored data. The public is invited to participate and provide any comments and evidence.
After the public hearing, the CID will continue with the expert review.
September – The Commissioner will make a final decision on the documents that will approve, modify, or reject the applications.
Confirmed rates must be submitted to CMS and AHCT no later than mid-September.
These rates are sent by CMS and Access Health prior to CT
November – AHCT hopes to have prices and plans posted on its website two weeks before open enrollment begins.
December – Before registration closes
