We have received preliminary rates for our Blue Cross of California individual health pre-65 clients and the increase looks to be one of the lowest in over 10 years. This is in contradiction to Blue Shield's recent February 1st rate change where increases appear to average between 15-30%.
In prior newsletters to our clients, we have forecasted milder increases going forward and it is nice to finally have validation of this prediction...not to mentioned welcomed relief to Blue Cross members.
We feel that a company's rate increase in the next 12-18 months will be a good indication of their financial strength going forward.
The trend should be toward single digit
increases and a carrier which is unable to
maintain this trend might be suspect.
The new rates should be available for your California instant health quote through our engines during January.
Typically, when there is a rate change, new enrollees with an effective date before the rate change can lock in the old rates for up to 6 months.
As we have more information on this option and
the increase itself, we will update this
