    Health insurance premiums in Virginia’s individual marketplace are set to rise as high as 265 percent in this new year.

    According to the Virginia State Corporation Commission’s Affordable Care Act filing data, the maximum allowable premium hike for Optima Health Plan customers is 265.5 percent, which represents the largest increases in the Virginia individual market next year. Some Cigna Health and Life Insurance Company health plans on the individual market are set to rise 168.6 percent in 2018.

    The maximum allowable increases for Group Hospitalization and Medical Services, Inc. customers will be 213.2 percent in 2018, and some CareFirst BlueChoice, Inc. customers will be paying 162.5 percent more than they did in 2017.

    Thee Virginia State Corporation Commission explained that the sharp increases are legal in the state because they follow “federal uniform modification guidelines.” Insurance companies such as CareFirst provided reasons for the rate changes such as the “age factor.”

    “It is possible that a CareFirst member may receive a 162.5 percent rate increase. The maximum percentage change of 162.5 percent is based upon the company's reported data in their rate filing,” the spokesperson said

    No Problem ! You Can Keep Your Doctor............. I'm surprised there hasn't been a massive revolt from the people paying all this money.
