Covered California Prices for Small Business to Rise 5.9%

September 19, 2016

Small business employees who get health coverage through the Covered California health insurance exchange will see an average price increase of 5.9 percent next year.

The figure announced last week affects roughly 28,000 people who work for companies with up to 100 employees.

The 5.9 percent rate increase is smaller than last year’s increase of 7.2 percent for small businesses.

It’s also smaller than the 13.2 percent increase in average premiums for Covered California’s much larger individual market, which serves about 1.4 million people.
