Commercial Claims Data from Private Insurers
In accordance with the Administrative Rule He-W 950 (CHIS Procedures for the Release of Claims Data Sets for Public and Research Purposes), there are three different types of release of the commercial claims data. The claims data are released in the form of a Public Use Data Set, Limited Use Health Care Claims Research Data Set, or Confidential Health Care Claims Research Data Set. NH DHHS has contracted with Milliman to coordinate the data set release.
Limited Use and Confidential Health Care Claims Research Data Sets may be requested through an application and approval process in which the requestor specifies and justifies the data elements to be included in the data set. In this way, the data set is customized for the intent of the proposed research, and limits the release of personal health information. The application is available through the NHCHIS.com website.
