Rate Changes

As I noted last night, thanks to the federal Rate Review website finally being updated to include the final, approved 2022 rates for both the individual and small group markets in all 50 states (+DC), I've been able to fill in the missing data for my annual ACA Rate Change Project.

As I note there, the overall weighted average looks like it'll be roughly +3.5% nationally.

Normally I write up a separate entry for both the preliminary and approved rate changes in each individual state, but it seems like overkill to create 14 separate entries at once. Besides, in many of these states there's been few if any changes between the preliminary and approved rate changes.

For the sake of completeness, here's the final average 2022 rate changes (weighted in some cases, unweighted in others due to a lack of enrollment data) for Alaska, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Texas and Wyoming!
