In October 2013, S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI) launched the S&P Healthcare Claims Indices (the indices). This new index series is designed to provide an independent, timely measure of the changes in healthcare expenditures and utilization for individuals enrolled in commercial health insurance plans in the United States.
S&P DJI developed these new indices in conjunction with healthcare professionals at Health Index Advisors (HIA), a joint venture between the premier actuarial and consulting firms Aon Inc. and Milliman Inc. S&P DJI combined its knowledge and experience in developing leading indices with HIA’s experience in the healthcare market to develop the first index series of its kind, based on actual healthcare claims data.
