Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a previously approved information collection; Title of Information Collection: Rate Increase Disclosure and Review Requirements (45 CFR part 154); Use: 45 CFR part 154 implements the annual review of unreasonable increases in premiums for health insurance coverage called for by section 2794. The regulation established a rate review program to ensure that all rate increases that meet or exceed an established threshold are reviewed by a state or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine whether the rate increases are unreasonable. Accordingly, issuers offering non-grandfathered health insurance coverage in the individual and/or small group markets are required to submit Rate Filing Justifications to CMS. Section 154.103(b) exempts grandfathered health plan coverage as defined in 45 CFR 147.140 and excepted benefits as described in section 2791(c) of the PHS Act. In the Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2019 (2019 Payment Notice) (83 FR 74, April 17, 2018), Section 154.103 was modified so that student health insurance coverage, as defined in § 147.145, is also exempted from Federal rate review requirements for plans beginning on or after July 1, 2018. Section 154.200(a)(1) previously provided that a rate increase for single risk pool coverage beginning on or after January 1, 2017 was subject to a reasonableness review if: (1) The average increase, including premium rating factors described in § 147.102, for all enrollees, weighted by premium volume for any plan within the product, meets or exceeds 10 percent; or (2) the increase exceeds a state-specific threshold approved by the Secretary. In the 2019 Payment Notice, this provision was amended to establish a 15 percent federal default threshold for reasonableness review beginning with single risk pool rate filings submitted by issuers for plan or policy years beginning on or after January 1, 2019. The Rate Filing Justification consists of three parts. All issuers must continue to submit a Uniform Rate Review Template (URRT) (Part I of the Rate Filing Justification) for all single risk pool plans. Issuers that submit a rate filing that includes a plan that meets or exceeds the threshold must include a written description justifying the rate increase, also known as the consumer justification narrative (Part II of the Rate Filing Justification). We note that the threshold set by CMS constitutes a minimum standard and most states currently employ stricter rate review standards and may continue to do so. Issuers offering a QHP or any single risk pool submission containing a rate increase of any size must continue to submit an actuarial memorandum (Part III of the Rate Filing Justification). Form Number: CMS–10379 (OMB control number: 0938–1141); Frequency: Annually; Affected Public: Private Sector; Businesses or other for-profits, Not-for-profit institutions; Number of Respondents: 589; Total Annual Responses: 2,363; Total Annual Hours: 20,240.
