The 2019 Utah Mental Health Parity Survey is a new survey specifically for Utah’s Comprehensive health insurance market. The purpose of this survey is to collect information on mental health parity for H16 Major Medical health benefit plans being offered in Utah as of July 1, 2019.
Who is required to file?
All Fraternal, Health, Life and Property & Casualty insurers who have Comprehensive Hospital & Medical (Major Medical) business in Utah are required to complete and file this survey. All other insurers are exempt. The completed survey form should be sent to the Utah Insurance Department by November 15, 2019. Failure to file by the deadline may subject your company to the enforcement penalties under Utah Code § 31A-2-308.
Please review the instructions and survey form carefully so that you will understand how to report your data. This will reduce the number of corrections after the survey is filed. However, as always we will work with you to understand and file the survey forms.
The Utah Insurance Department has made a change in how it handles the security of electronic transmissions. As of January 1, 2017, the Utah Insurance Department will only accept electronic submissions of the Utah Mental Health Parity Survey as Adobe PDF forms via the UID secure file upload website at: https://forms.uid.utah.gov/insurance/fileuploads/. All survey files should be uploaded to the “Health Research” Division. Filings submitted to other divisions will not be accepted.
Any other forms of data submission are not acceptable. Also, do not make any changes to the formatting of the Adobe PDF forms. This file is designed to allow us to import your data directly into a software database, while attempting to remain “user friendly”. Any modification of the Adobe PDF forms (other than simple data entry) may cause errors when we import your survey form.
Please remember each insurer is required to file a complete survey. In cases where your company has nothing to report, answer with a “0” rather than leaving a section blank. To make this easier, we have pre-populated the survey with sample data, so that you can change just the sections that are applicable to your company. This includes providing a contact person, with correct contact information, including a valid telephone number and email address.
