Health Data Authority Health Insurance Claims Reporting

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 41345
Filed: 03/06/2017 02:50:57 PM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 31A-22-614.5(3)(a) authorizes the commissioner to coordinate the administrative rules adopted under Section 31A-22-614.5 with the administrative rules adopted by the Department of Health under Section 26-1-37.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The department received written comments regarding this rule during a previous amendment process in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision in Gobeille v. Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. The comments were received during the normal rule exposure period and were favorable to the department's proposed changes.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The rule allows insurance claim and medical data to be collected by the Utah Department of Health that will be shared with and utilized by the Clinical Health Information Index (CHIE) and the state's All-Claims Database. This data is helpful in identifying trends in health care costs, developing shopping tools, informing health care providers of ongoing health care needs, and assisting with numerous research projects both locally and nationally. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
