On an annual basis, the New Hampshire Insurance Department (NHID) is required to perform a hospital tiering analysis based the HealthFirst benefit design, the first standard benefit design offered to consumers in New Hampshire. In addition to using diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) from NH discharge data, the NHID uses payment information from the NH Comprehensive Health Information System (NHCHIS) to perform this analysis.
