In accordance with Administrative Rule He-W 950 (CHIS Procedures for the Release of Claims Data Sets for Public and Research Purposes), there are three different types of allowable commercial claims data release: (1) a Commercial Claims Public Use Data Set, (2) a Commercial Limited Use Data Set, and (3) a Confidential Health Care Claims Research Data Set. NH DHHS has contracted with Milliman to coordinate the data sets' release.
Limited Use and Confidential Health Care Claims Research data sets may be requested through an application and approval process in which the requestor specifies and justifies the data elements to be included in the data set. In this way, each data set is customized for the intent of the proposed research, and the release of personal health information simultaneously is limited.
The Optional Data Addendum Form to the Limited Use Commercial Data Sets is an optional, additional form to aid in determining what fields to request. This form is not a required form to request the Limited Use Data Set however it is highly encouraged and will aid in the review process and in the extraction of the approved data sets.
For access to other data sets, including the Confidential Health Care Claims Research Data Set, please send your request toMary.Fields@dhhs.nh.gov.
