In at least one state, 2015 health insurance premium increases on the new public exchanges for individuals will be below rate increases experienced in recent years.

Washington State released proposed premium rates last week. The average proposed rate increase for individual health insurance policies offered inside and outside the state’s exchange, Washington Healthplanfinder, is 8.25 percent. The average proposed rate increase for the eight insurers operating on the exchange is 5.4 percent.
