Public Hearing on Proposed Health Insurance Rate Hikes

The Connecticut Insurance Department has announced proposed health insurance rate hikes for 2022 filed by Aetna, Anthem Health Plans, ConnectiCare Benefits Inc., Cigna Health and Life, Harvard Pilgrim and United Healthcare/Oxford for the 2022 plan year.

The rate increases range from 5.1 percent to 12.3 percent in the individual market and from7.4 percent to 15.8 percent in the small group market.

It’s infuriating to see rate increases like this at the same time Connecticut’s Democratic leaders continue to block reforms that will reduce health insurance premiums for all families by an average of 25% – 30% and rein in out of control growth of health industry cost drivers.

Connecticut families deserve better.

The public will have an opportunity to speak out about these rate increases. Details on how to testify are below.
