Mark Farrah Associates Assesses Commercial Health Insurance Market Share for the New York Market


McMurray, Pennsylvania--(Business Wire) – Health insurance companies provided medical coverage for approximately 264 million people, based on September 30, 2017 state level enrollment data as filed in statutory financial reports from the NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) and the CA DMHC (California Department of Managed Health Care).  While state level market share is an important metric, industry analysts often need to assess market share at the county or metropolitan statistical area (MSA) level.  However, attaining commercial market share by county can be a challenge because health plans are generally not required to report county-level enrollment.  In the latest analysis brief, Mark Farrah Associates (MFA),, assessed market demographics and commercial market share data, with a focus on health plan market position in three metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) in New York.

MFA’s recent brief highlighted the local commercial market position in three MSAs in New York.  With nearly 13.4 million people, the New York City metropolitan area is New York’s largest MSA.  As of September 30, 2017, UnitedHealth and Anthem commanded 46.3% and 28.1% of the market, respectively.  To read the full text of “A Brief look at Commercial Health Insurance Market Share in Select New York Metro Areas", visit the Analysis Briefs library on Mark Farrah Associates' website.
