In the Spotlight
August 16, 2019
Covered California, the state’s Affordable Care Act exchange, announced some good news a few weeks ago.
On July 19, the exchange said average premiums on its health plans would rise an average of 0.8% for 2020, the lowest annual increase in its history. In some regions, rates would increase even less or fall; customers who shop around when enrollment for 2020 plans opens on Oct. 15 could reduce their premiums by as much as 16.5%, depending on their home location, the exchange said.
