Oregon — ​​Draft 2024 filing deadlines for All issuers selling health benefit and pediatric dental plans: Based on the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services’ (CMS) deadline for final plan data submission for 2024 plans, the Division of Financial Regulation (DFR) has prepared the following draft timeline for submission of 2024 form, rate, and binder filings. The filing deadlines apply to health benefit plans and exchange certified pediatric dental plans offered on-exchange and off-exchange. Dental products that will not be exchange certified are not required to follow this timeline.

DFR is providing these preliminary deadlines for planning purposes, but issuers are advised that we are still awaiting final federal due dates for 2024 plans. We will respond and adjust to changes in federal due dates as necessary.​
