Data: Iowa insurance Exchange Will Offer Low Premiums

September 23, 2013

Newly released rate information on Iowa’s health care marketplace shows the state will offer some of the lowest premiums in the country.

The Iowa Insurance Division released numbers on Sept. 20 that back up earlier remarks by Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart on the relatively low premiums for the marketplace.

Three age-specific applicants are used in the sample information to show Iowans their options for the marketplace, also known as an exchange. Four carriers will sell individual plans, though coverage varies by location.

The Des Moines Register reports Iowa residents already pay some of the lowest health insurance premiums in the country.

States must have a health care exchange under the new Affordable Care Act. Enrollment starts Oct. 1 and coverage begins on Jan. 1.
