November Update: DHP Posts Two New Reports; Third-Quarter Data to Be Updated Next Month

The AIS Data Team has posted two new reports to the In-App Downloads section of your subscriber dashboard.

Enrollment Trends, 1Q2019 vs. 2Q2019 examines major changes in the second-quarter 2019 data since first-quarter 2019; this report will be updated in the weeks following each quarterly update.

In addition, we have posted Special Report on 2020 Star Ratings, an updated and enhanced version of a previous report examining star ratings. This newest report analyzes the recently released 2020 star ratings, including the top insurers’ enrollment trends.

Also of note: DHP researchers will be compiling and auditing third-quarter 2019 data in the coming weeks. We expect to post the new figures in mid-to-late December, so be sure to download any second-quarter reports by the first few weeks of next month.
