For most people, health insurance is the financing mechanism to manage personal health care costs. Health insurance protects against the risk of financial loss that can occur from unexpected accidents and illnesses. It also provides a way for chronic health problems to be treated and managed in ways that many people could not otherwise afford. Because health insurance is so important to the citizens of Utah, it is in the interest of the State to monitor and maintain a stable health insurance industry.
An important purpose of the Insurance Department is to ensure that Utah has an adequate and healthy insurance market. The purpose of this report is to provide an annual evaluation of Utah’s commercial health insurance market as required by Utah Code § 31A-2-201.2.
The 2019 Health Insurance Market Report is available on the Department’s Reports page and is linked below.
