Health Insurance Provider Network PUF

$179 / year

This dataset shows the issuer-level data identifying provider network URLs by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) is releasing the State-Based Marketplace (SBM) PUF (Public Use Files) in order to improve the transparency and increase access to the SBM data. The SBM PUF includes data on Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) and Stand-alone Dental Plans (SADPs) offered in states which operate their own Marketplaces that do not rely on the federal information technology platform for QHP eligibility and enrollment functionality. This includes states which operate their own Small Business Health Options Programs (SHOP).

The Network PUF (Ntwrk-PUF) is one of the six files that make up the state-based Marketplace Public Use Files (SBM PUF). The Ntwrk-PUF contains issuer level data identifying provider network URLs. These data originate from the Network ID template (i.e., template field), an Excel-based form used by issuers to describe their plans in the QHP/SADP application process, and were provided by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) by extracting the information from their System for Electronic Rate and Form Filing (SERFF).
