Notes:
The Data Call Spreadsheet was updated 10-15-15 to allow additional rows of data on the Data by Zip Code tab; as initially issued, there was text regarding the confidential treatment of submissions along with instructions relating to the cumulative reporting of data in rows 18-25.  Because some portions of the spreadsheet are protected, insurers were unable to remove this information or add additional rows.  This text has been moved to the top of the worksheet such that respondents should now be able to utilize as many rows as necessary to complete their responses.

The Data Call Spreadsheet was updated 10-16-15 to allow additional rows for insurance company names to be inserted on the Instructions tab so that all insurance companies may be listed for insurance group respondents.
