Objectives: The Reduction of Issuer Burden Through Technology Grant will provide funding to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) to build an IT connection between the System for Electronic Rate and Form Filing (SERFF) and the Unified Rate Review (URR) module in the Health Insurance and Oversight System (HIOS) to increase the efficiency of federal processes and reduce the administrative burden imposed on health insurance issuers and state regulators at Departments of Insurance. The Health Insurance Enforcement and Consumer Protections grants was awarded in 2016 and provided a funding source to assist states in implementing and planning several of the federal market reforms and consumer protections under Part A of Title XXVII of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act). The Health Insurance Enforcement and Consumer Protections grants provided states with the opportunity to ensure their laws, regulations, and procedures are in line with federal requirements and that states are able to effectively oversee and enforce the PHS Act’s title XXVII Part A provisions with respect to health insurance issuers.
