Pa. insurers request increases up to 26 percent on some plans

By

Pennsylvania insurers have requested rate increases of up to 26 percent for some individual and small-group plans starting Jan. 1, 2015, according to regulatory filings with the Pennsylvania Insurance Department.

Obamacare requires that rate increase requests of 10 percent or more on non-grandfathered individual and small-group plans be posted publicly, and increases at that level must be approved by the PID before being enacted. Pennsylvania’s public notice system does not include requests below 10 percent.

All of the following requests were submitted on July 16 or 18 and are listed as pending, meaning they have not yet obtained approval.
