Early ACA exchange rate filings signal an end to massive premium hikes

Early exchange plan rates requested by insurers in several states suggest massive premium hikes may be a thing of the past.

In Washington, for example, 13 payers that intend to participate in the state’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) markets have filed a “record low” average of under 1%, Washington’s Office of the Insurance Commissioner announced.

There will be at least one insurer participating in all 39 counties, according to the announcement, leaving no bare counties.
