Rate Review Resources

Rate review is the process by which state or federal insurance regulators review health plans’ proposed insurance premium rates to ensure that they are reasonable based on a variety of factors. Although easier in some states than others, public participation has the potential to not only hold down premiums for consumers but also to apply pressure to reduce the underlying healthcare cost drivers in a state.

Consumers Union hosts rate review-related conference calls and distributes information to advocates and consumers on our distribution list. To be included in our distribution list, please email dena.mendelsohn “at” consumer.org.”
