A glimpse of the 2015 insurance landscape is beginning to emerge.
The average rate increase for health insurance premiums (across reporting states) is 7.22%. Blue Cross Blue Shield plans have submitted increase requests across the country typically above 9%.
The average monthly premium (without subsidies) may be around $373.
New healthcare CO-OPs — nonprofit insurers created under the ACA — are priced comparably to or lower than competitors. Arizona’s CO-OP is the lowest-priced plan in the state, with a 23% proposed rate decrease from 2014.
