With Trump again hailing repeal of Obamacare mandate, health insurers propose 19% rate hike in state
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state's insurance commissioner says health insurers in the state have proposed an average rate increase of 19 percent for next year for the individual and family market. Mike Kreidler said in a statement Monday that 11 insurers filed 74 health plans for 2019. He said there would be no counties where health insurance wouldn't be available, although 14 would have only one insurer selling through Washington's Exchange, Washington Healthplanfinder.
