  • Determine which plans have the highest and lowest premium rates per state/metal level, etc.
  • Understand how public health insurance exchange marketplaces are changing the way health insurance is sold
  • Identify market opportunities for future plan years

Also included on the website, a newsfeed features original AIS reporting on plans and exchanges, following their latest results and changes. PLUS the AIS researchers who are compiling this massive data set are available to directly answer your questions and give you customized help in understanding and applying the data to your projects.
