With Open Enrollment just around the corner, has anyone heard yet what they are expecting their 2019 premiums to be? CareFirst is still only showing the 2018 plans on their website.
http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/bs-md-hogan-redmer-insurance-20180921-story.htmlCareFirst said customers who were in a preferred provider option plan may be able to get a better rate in a similar health maintenance organization, which already covers the majority of consumers. CareFirst plans to advertise the option in advance of the enrollment season that begins Nov. 1.
CareFirst is reducing the rate on its HMO by 17 percent, while rates on the PPO will decline 11.1 percent. It had been seeking increases of 18.5 percent on the HMO and 91.4 percent on the PPO.
Kaiser, which had sought a 37.4 percent increase for its HMO, now will reduce that rate by 7.4 percent.
