All-Payer Claims Database (APCD)

  • APCD Legislation: New Jersey All-Payer Claims Database Act  introduced in 2012: establishes New Jersey All-Payer Claims Database and arbitration process for reimbursing out-of-network health care providers. However, in June 2013, Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) officials declined to seek a federal grant that would have enabled New Jersey to create a database of all health insurance claims, citing the long-term costs of maintaining the system.
