"Health Insurance Mandates in the States, 2011" is published along with three other related reports and should be reviewed in their entirety in order to gain a complete picture of the mandated benefit and provider chart. The total mandate count for the 2011 edition is 2,262 up from 2,156 in the 2010 edition.

The corresponding documents to review are:

  • Frequently Asked Mandated Benefit Questions, 2011 — This report provides a fuller explanation of our mandated benefit research methodology, and is included in this publication.
  • Mandated Benefit Definition Memo, 2011 — This report, which is included in this publication, defines the terms used in the mandated benefit chart, and is largely based on what is usually specified in the enacted legislation. Mandate legislation differs from bill to bill and from state to state. It would be impossible to make a detailed assessment of each state’s mandates without evaluating each piece of legislation — legislation which is often amended in subsequent years. Our report is intended to be a snapshot and so may not apply to all variations of a particular mandate.
  • Trends in Mandated Benefits, 2011 — This report highlights emerging trends in state mandated benefit legislation.

To order the full report, including a state-by-state listing of mandates and mandate definitions, please complete and return the order form, or contact us at, or 703-836-6200.
