OHCA Proposal Sets Rules for Collection of Health Care Spending Data

This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

What’s happening: Draft regulations outline how spending will be tracked for monitoring performance against the spending target.    

What else to know: Stakeholders can provide written comments (due Dec. 1) and public comment at a Nov. 14 workshop.  

On Oct. 27, the Office of Health Care Affordability (OHCA) released draft regulations on the collection of total health care expenditures data. As expected, the draft regulations place the data submission requirements on payers rather than providers. Nevertheless, these regulations and the accompanying submission guidelines are critically important as the resulting expenditures data will be used by OHCA to monitor hospitals and other health care entities’ performance against the spending targets. 

Written comments on the draft regulations are due on Dec. 1 at 5 p.m. (PT). Additionally, stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide public comment at a Proposed Emergency Regulatory Action Workshop on Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. (PT).  

If you have any questions or feedback on the proposed regulations, reach out to Ben Johnson at
