Public Access to PPACA Health Insurance Filings

The Health Filing Access Interface (HFAI)

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is a federal statute that was signed into law on March 23, 2010. As part of the reform, states are encouraged to make health filings that meet PPACA eligibility requirements accessible to interested parties via the internet. The Health Filing Access Interface (HFAI) was developed in response to this request. Interested parties can use the HFAI to search and review PPACA-related filings submitted to the state since June 10, 2010. All filings are subject to the state's public access statute. While all PPACA-related filings will display in the search, interested parties will only be able to view the details of the filing if it was marked eligible for public access by the state.
