Requires an insurer or health maintenance organization that provides coverage under an Affordable Care Act Marketplace (Marketplace) plan to provide to each individual covered under the Marketplace plan, not more than two months before the birthday on which the individual will become 65 years of age, a written message that includes: (1) a statement that the individual will be eligible to enroll in Medicare during the individual's initial enrollment period, which begins three months before the individual becomes 65 years of age; (2) a statement advising the individual that, in most cases, someone covered by a Marketplace plan will want to end their Marketplace coverage upon becoming eligible for Medicare; and (3) detailed instructions that the individual may follow to cancel the individual's Marketplace plan.
The overall average rate increase for 2023 Indiana individual marketplace plans is 5.7%.
The IDOI will finalize the review of the 2023 ACA compliant filings both on and off the federal Marketplace by August 18, 2022.
The medical trend increase ranges from 5.1-10.2%. This varies depending on networks and experience of each carrier.
The premium averages shown consist of a combination of catastrophic, bronze, silver, gold and platinum plans. The premium is reflected as an average; individuals may experience a rate increase or decrease dependent on the plan selection or auto-enrollment process.
Within each metal level there are numerous plans with various cost sharing methods.
There's been no change to any of the rate filings on the individual market. A few of the small group market carriers were shaved down a bit.
Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), approved the extension of Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) coverage for 12 months after pregnancy in Indiana and West Virginia. As a result, up to an additional 15,000 people annually – including 12,000 in Indiana and 3,000 in West Virginia – will now be eligible for Medicaid or CHIP for a full year after pregnancy. With today’s approval, in combination with previously approved state extensions, an estimated 333,000 Americans annually in 23 states and D.C. are eligible for 12 months of postpartum coverage. If all states adopted this option, as many as 720,000 people across the United States annually would be guaranteed Medicaid and CHIP coverage for 12 months after pregnancy.
The Indiana Insurance Dept. doesn't seem to have issued a formal press release about this (or if they did, I can't find it), but they've quietly posted their preliminary 2022 health insurance premium rate change requests for both the individual and small group markets:
The overall average rate increase for 2022 Indiana individual marketplace plans is -1.65%.
Anthem, CareSource , US Health and Life, and Celtic (MHS/Ambetter) have filed to participate in the 2022 Indiana Individual Marketplace.
Anthem has also filed to offer an Off-Marketplace catastrophic plan in Benton, Jasper, Newton, Warren and White Counties.
The IDOI will finalize the review of the 2022 ACA compliant filings both on and off the federal Marketplace by September 22, 2021.
It looks like US Health & Life is new to the Indiana individual market, while UnitedHealthcare of KY is new to the small group market. Unfortunately I couldn't find the actual small group enrollment number for either Physicians Health Plan or Southeastern Indiana Health on the sm. group market, and the IU Health Plan number is an estimate.
Now that I've developed a standardized format/layout & methodology for tracking both state- and county-level COVID vaccination levels by partisan lean (which can also be easily applied to other variables like education level, median income, population density, ethnicity, etc), I've started moving beyond my home state of Michigan.
The Indiana Insurance Dept. has posted their 2021 individual & small group rate filings to the SERFF database. Nothing terribly noteworthy other than the average requested rate increase is unusually high for 2021 compared to most other states so far (10.2%, mainly via Celtic), and it looks like a second division of UnitedHealthcare is offering policies on the small group market next year:
Back in early July, the Indiana Insurance Dept. posted the preliminary requested 2020 rate increases for the carriers participating in the ACA-compliant individual market. Technically there's three carriers there (CareSource Indiana, Celtic/Ambetter and Anthem), though Anthem only has 4 (yes, four) people enrolled in off-exchange policies total.
At the time, the IN DOI stated that the requested rates came in at an average premium increase of 9%:
