The Nebraska Department of Insurance has posted the final 2016 premium rates for individual policies sold through the marketplace. For policies purchased from BCSBS NE and Coventry, the rates increased from 12 percent to 31 percent compared to 2015 premium rates. Policies are also available from United Healthcare of the Midlands and Medica, who did not participate in the individual marketplace in 2015. Open enrollment begins Nov. 1, 2015, and continues through Jan. 31, 2016.
While the announcement does not directly affect employers, it is important for employers to understand the marketplace options and they may compare to the employer’s offerings.
