Covered California premiums to rise by smallest-ever amount
San Francisco Chronicle

Health insurance premiums for the roughly 2.2 million Californians who buy health plans on the individual market — either through the state insurance exchange Covered California or directly from insurers — will go up less than 1% in 2020, Covered California officials said Tuesday.

The average statewide premium increase will be 0.8% — the smallest annual average premium increase in Covered California’s six-year history. In 2019, premiums increased nearly 9%.
