Ohio Filing Deadlines


2019 EHB Compliant Health Plans and 2018/2019 Student Health Plans


The Ohio Department of Insurance (ODI) has received questions regarding the deadlines for form, rate, and QHP Binder filings that support the 2019 EHB compliant plans as well as the 2018/2019 school year student health plans.  As you know, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has finalized the HHS Notice of Benefits and Payment Parameters for 2019 Rule, the 2019 Letter to Issuers and the Rate Review Timelines - 2019.  In order to meet the deadlines HHS has proposed for plan data submission, ODI is releasing the following state filing deadlines.


As with last year, ODI may provide additional flexibility or updated guidance to Ohio carriers to accommodate potential changes that become necessary.


These state filing deadlines apply to form, rate and binder filings (if applicable) for (1) student health plans, (2) both on-exchange and off-exchange major medical plans and (3) both

on-exchange and off-exchange certified Stand Alone Dental Plans (SADPs).


Please note, that the filing deadlines are different for student health plans vs. the individual and small group markets.


The filing deadlines are as follows:
