Covered California announced that all 11 plans will return to the marketplace in 2019 to sell health insurance, with rates for most consumers going up an average of 8.7 percent over 2018.
While the average rate increase is more modest than last year’s increase, the rates would have been even lower were it not for changes at the federal level. The federal government’s decision to eliminate the individual mandate penalty inflated rates this year, which should have been closer to 5 percent. While the average rate increase announced today reflects the statewide average, the circumstances for individual consumers will vary in 2019 given their own individual circumstances and regional rate variations. At that time, many consumers may find they can save money on their premium if they switch to a lower cost plan.
