Rate Review Grants
The Affordable Care Act makes $250 million available over five years to help states transform the way they review health insurance premium increases and enhance pricing transparency. These grants help hold insurance companies accountable for their proposed rate hikes. In addition, these grants also fund Data Centers that help the public to better understand the comparative price of procedures in a given region or for a specific hospital, insurer, or provider. This map below shows shows all four rounds of grants. Click on a state below to learn how that state plans to spent its grant money.
