Glossary

The following is a list of common terms associated with policy form and rate filings.

  • Approved Date — Date the filing is considered to be approved by OCI. When searching, use the format: MM/DD/YYYY.
  • Category — Lists the general groupings of insurance products available in the marketplace. A category may have one or more sub-categories.
  • Company Name — Name of the insurance company or rate service organization for which the filing was accepted as filed or approved. Only companies with approved/filed submissions are available via this records search tool. Note that if you search for a company and there are other company names associated with the company, rates/forms may be presented where those rates/forms were approved/filed under a different name. The name of the company under which they were approved/filed will be shown in the results list.
  • Deemed Date — Date the filing is considered to be deemed approved by OCI. Format must be MM/DD/YYYY.
  • Documents — Up to three types of documents can be associated with a single filing:
    • Filing document - a complete copy of the filing made with OCI.
    • Summary document - a plain language summary of the rate filing; applicable only to comprehensive health insurance rate filings.
    • Comments - a list of all comments received regarding a particular filing; applicable only to comprehensive health insurance rate filings.

  • Microfilm References — Filings approved prior to imaging are not available online at this time. For these filings, you will see a Microfilm Number and Frame Number as the result of your online search for records. OCI can furnish you with copies of specific files in their entirety but cannot do extensive content research to find specific information. We advise making an appointment (see Contact Us above) in order for you to research those microfilm records in person.

  • Type of Insurance (TOI) — Lists the major lines of business commonly referred to as Type of Insurance. A single TOI may have one or more Sub-types of Insurance or sub-TOIs. See the Type of Insurance list for more information.

Search Tips

By default, all search results are sorted most recent date filed to least recent date filed. (The Date Filed is the date the filing was filed/approved by the OCI).

You can sort the search results by other columns as well, including:

  • Tracking number
  • Company name
  • Filing type (form, rate/rule, advertisement, actuarial certification, etc.)
  • SERFF number

For example, to sort the results alphabetically by company starting with the beginning of the set, click the down arrow next to the Company Name column header. See example to the right. To order the results alphabetically in ascending order by Company Name, click the up arrow.
