Pennsylvania Health Insurance 2018 Rate Changes – Individual And Group

2018 Pa Health insurance premiums are going up in 2018. How much? Carriers authorized to conduct business in Pennsylvania have submitted their new rates, which will be reviewed by the Department of Insurance (DOI). Individual, family, and group policies charge different rates each year. It is also possible that several plans that were offered in 2017, will be replaced by different options in 2018.

Below, we have listed the proposed price changes for ACA (Affordable Care Act) compliant policies. Although the DOI often approves rate change requests, it is possible that the entire increase (or decrease) may not be granted. Participating companies offer increased transparency by publicly requesting price changes.
