Public Records Request

If you would like to request public records from the Ohio Department of Insurance, please click here and complete the electronic form. Note- A requester of public records does not have to make a written request, does not have to provide his or her identity and does not have to provide the intended use of the requested public records. The Department may charge $.10 per page for copying records and there might be cases where some records are not available due to state retention schedules. If you prefer not to make a written request or if you have any questions, please contact the Department at 614-644-2640.

Public Access Health Insurance Filings

The Health Filing Access Interface (HFAI) was developed to allow easier access to major medical health insurance filings. Interested parties can use the HFAI to search, review, and comment on filings submitted to the state since June 10, 2010.

It is important to note all filings and all comments submitted are subject to the state's public access statute.

The Ohio Department of Insurance reviews all filings to consider whether the proposed rates are excessive, inadequate, or unfairly discriminatory, in violation of Ohio law, and whether the rates otherwise comply with Ohio Insurance law.

If you would like to access the HFAI, please click here.

Starting September 1, 2011, health insurance companies also must provide information to consumers when they file rate increases above a specified threshold defined by Federal regulators for individual or small group policies. The threshold is currently set at 10 percent, but may change in future years. If you would like to review the disclosures for Ohio rate increases above the threshold, please click here.
