It's important to note that Idaho's rate filing summary tables don't actually quite match up with the actual rate filings themselves. For instance, the state DOI not only rounds off all rate changes to the nearest percent (instead of tenths or hundredths of a percent as the filings state), in some cases they're actually off by nearly a full point.
For instance, in the individual market, they have Blue Cross down as having a 0% rate change when they actually asked for an 0.9% increase, and so on. Not massive differences, but still worth mentioning. Overall, however, they're correct that the weighted average comes in at virtually even year over year.
For the small group market, it's an average increase of 6.6%.
