ACA Health Insurance Rates Going Up

(Salem, OR) -- Health insurance rates for plans under the Affordable Care Act in Oregon will be going up next year. The Oregon Department of Consumer & Business Services says the requests from insurance companies would cause individual plans to increase an average of six-point-seven percent, while small businesses would see an increase of six-point-nine percent. Reasons for the increases include inflation, medical trends, and enrollment changes. Public hearings on the rates will be held in July. Final rates will be decided in August.
