Commissioner Releases Health Care Cost Studies and Recommendations

Iowa Insurance Commissioner Susan E. Voss has recently released to the Governor and Iowa Legislators two reports regarding health care costs impacting on insurance rates, both of which are posted on the Insurance Division web site.

In November, a report was completed by an actuarial consulting firm under contract with the Insurance Division analyzing the health care cost drivers in Iowa.  That report can be accessed by clicking here.

In December, a report title “The Challenge of Bending the Health Care Cost Curve” was completed by another analyst under contract with the Division.  That report can be accessed by clicking here.

In addition, Commissioner Voss this week has submitted to the Legislature and Governor recommendations for dealing with health care costs in the future. That report, also posted on the Division web site, can be accessed by clicking here.
