Health insurance rates could go up 27 percent in Colorado next year

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - Coloradans shopping for health insurance on the private market could see eye-popping rate hikes averaging 27 percent next year.

It's a hike that insurance officials blame on federal uncertainty about what is going to happen to president Obama's health care law.

The 2018 rates were reported Friday by The Denver Post.

Colorado's Insurance Commissioner Marguerite Salazar says health insurers are asking to be able to charge customers in the individual market nearly 27 percent more on average in premiums next year.

The Division of Insurance must still review and approve the requests.

The price increases would impact a relatively small percentage of Coloradans. No more than 8 percent of people in the state shop for health insurance plans on their own.
