Pricing & Analysis Resources Inc. is trying to an organize a formal study of the individual major medical market.

Traditionally, most studies of health insurance experience have been based on data from group health insurance plans and other plans not necessarily directly comparable to individual medical policies, according to Pricing & Analysis, Omaha, Neb.

The firm hopes to round up individual medical insurers that will be willing to supply claims data and other data for the period extending from January 2003 through June 2007.

The firm will be funding the survey by collecting fees from the participating firms.
