HIDE Overview/Instructions

The HIDE report is two Excel files (one file for enrollment data and one file for premium data) that will be submitted to the Department on the same semi-annual basis. The report is due on February 15th and August 15th of each year. Please e-mail the Excel files to: [email protected].

Each tab on the Excel files asks for enrollment/premium data broken down by county. Enrollment is the total number of covered lives as of either 6/30 or 12/31. The January 1 report contains enrollment data as of 12/31 of the previous year; the July 1 report contains enrollment data as of 6/30 of that same year.

Premium is the total earned premium for the prior 12 month reporting period (e.g., premium for the 7/1/15 report would be earned premium from 7/1/14 – 6/30/15).

For each tab, please enter the following:

  • Report Date (either Jan 1 or Jul 1);
  • Submission Year (this will be the calendar year in which you are submitting the report; e.g., the report submitted for the Feb 15, 2015 due date would have 2015 as the submission year);
  • Company Name;
  • NAIC number and Group Code;
  • The appropriate enrollment/premium figures in each column, by county

To determine which county to use to report data, the residence of the policy holder should be used for Individual policies; the location of the employer should be used for Group policies. For Medicare Supplement non‐employer Group policies, the residence of the enrolled members should be used. The location of the school should be used for Student Health Plans.

Special Instructions:

The Stand‐Alone Dental columns and the Stand‐Alone Vision column should be comprised of enrollees who are covered pursuant to a stand‐alone contract for dental or vision benefits. Enrollees covered by dental or vision benefits pursuant to a rider that is attached to a contract providing hospital or medical benefits should be counted in the appropriate Large Group, Small Group or Individual column.

Student Health Plan includes policies issued to colleges and universities to cover students.
