Health Care Group Questions Premium Increases

A Colorado health care advocacy group wants state regulators to limit proposed 2018 health insurance premium increases, saying the higher rates are not justified. Leaders of the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative urged state Commissioner of Insurance, Marguerite Salazar to push insurers to accept lower premium increases in the individual market, where people buy health insurance on their own. The group says the proposed increases of 27 percent on average across all insurers, are too high. The group also argued that insurers provided contradictory information when asking for the increases.
