Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The purpose of this new rule is to establish a universal individual application for accident and health insurers doing business in Utah
Summary of the rule or change:
This rule makes it possible for an individual to complete one application for individual health insurance and submit that application to several individual health insurance insurers instead of completing a separate application for each insurer.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There is no cost to the state budget because this application is used by individuals seeking individual insurance from commercial health insurance insurers.
There is no cost to local government because this application is used by individuals seeking individual insurance from commercial health insurance insurers.
small businesses and persons other than businesses:
There is no impact on small business. Individuals may save time and effort by being able to complete and submit one application to several insurers rather than completing a separate application for each insurer.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
There are no costs for affected persons because the use of a universal application by an individual saves time and effort. Rather than filling out an individual application for each commercial insurer offering individual insurance, an individual will be able to complete one application and submit it to multiple insurers.

There is no fiscal impact on business. D. Kent Michie, Commissioner
