ACHI and its sponsor, the Health Insurance Rate Review Division of the Arkansas Insurance Department (HIRRD), are pleased to announce that the Arkansas All Payer Claims Database (APCD) website is now available and can be accessed at www.arkansasapcd.net. Please visit this website for all Arkansas APCD related resources including fact sheets, stakeholder meeting materials, information about statewide and national-level health care system transparency efforts, and more.
An APCD is a large-scale database that systematically collects health care data from a variety of payer sources. APCD functionality varies from state to state, and APCDs have been vehicles for increased transparency in the health care system, examinations of quality among health care services, and assessment of the impact of state programs and initiatives. Currently, fifteen states have an APCD and several more are actively working to implement this type of database. For more information on nationwide progress, visit the APCD Council website at www.apcdcouncil.org.
HIRRD was awarded a Cycle III grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services/Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight to “support health insurance rate review and increase transparency in health care pricing.” The award included specific funding for an APCD. HIRRD conducted a national search and solicitation for qualified and competitive bidders. Following an extensive evaluation process, the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement (ACHI) was awarded the contract to establish an APCD for the State of Arkansas.
