All-Payer Claims Database - Overview


Created in 2012 by Public Act 12-166, Connecticut's All Payer Claims Database (APCD) was established as a program to receive, store, and analyze health insurance claims data. The Act requires health insurers of health care services to submit medical and pharmacy claims data, as well as information on providers and eligibility. Information derived from this data seeks to improve the health of Connecticut's residents through the collection and analysis of data and the promotion of research addressing safety, quality, transparency, access and efficiency at all levels of health care delivery.
