The state's health care market overseer is preparing for the first time to notify insurers and providers being flagged for excessive cost growth, a new feature of a law passed three years ago to limit health care cost increases.

It's unclear how the new data will be used, though the Health Policy Commission has the power to demand performance improvement plans in certain cases.

"How this plays out: TBD," Health Policy Commission Executive Director David Seltz told the board Wednesday, using an acronym for "to be determined."
