Aiming developers at the insurance market?

It’s hard to think of a more opaque market than that for individual health insurance. But perhaps there’s enough data that can be reworked so that ordinary people can get a better understanding of it. Todd Park, HHS’ CTO, for sure thinks so, and just last week arranged (as in he said in this blog post) to allow developers to download files with data from all the markets in all 50 states & DC.  My hope is that this will inspire people like eHealthInsurance.com to put the most important part of any plan comparison (out of pocket maximums) front and center on their plan comparison tools. Otherwise, I may just have to build my own….

Connected Health’s product does just what you hope. People can really get a sense of true financial risk. And, the UI is clean.
