Insurance firms participating in New York’s ObamaCare health exchange are seeking double-digit hikes for patient medical premiums in 2015, new figures reviewed by The Post reveal.
The average hike sought by insurers for individual plans is 12 percent—but a number of firms serving large numbers of patients want to boost individual premiums by nearly 20 percent.What about the requests now going to the Oregon Insurance Division?
It looks like Moda (which now covers more than 40% of Oregon's individual market) is also asking for double-digit hikes: an 11-13% raise in the Portland area for the three categories listed (21 year olds; 40 year olds; and 60 year olds). Moda's small group increase proposals are in the 8-11% range. Below is the chart for individual 21 year old coverage.
