Maryland insurance officials approved final rates Friday for health plans to be sold in the online marketplace for individuals beginning Oct. 1. The rates offered by nine carriers are among the lowest of the 12 states that have proposed or approved rates for comparison and among the lowest in the D.C. area, according to an analysis by Maryland officials who will be operating the state’s marketplace.All the states, mostly blue states, that are ahead in implementing the exchanges are finding rates far lower than expected, meaning that some people will be able to afford health insurance for the first time in their lives. And the House voted yet again last week to repeal the entire program.
The Maryland Insurance Administration approved premiums at levels as much as 33 percent below what had been requested. For a 21-year-old non-smoker, for example, options start as low as $93 a month. Link
