RI health exchange releases plan rates, details
Rhode Island's state-run health benefits exchange has released the monthly premiums for the 28 plans it will offer for individuals and small businesses under the federal health care overhaul.
HealthSource RI Director Christine Ferguson released the rates Tuesday for the 12 individual and 16 small group plans during a meeting of the exchange's advisory board.
Three providers are selling plans on the exchange in 2014.
The rates show the premium for a 45-year-old ranges from $240 a month for a "bronze" plan to $408 a month for a "gold" plan. Copayments, co-insurance and deductibles vary. Many people will be eligible for tax credits to lower the cost.
Ferguson says it's difficult to compare 2014 plan costs with current plans because so much has changed under the Affordable Care Act.
