Office Statement on Release of Federal Health Care Reform Consumer Premium Impact Notices
Friday, September 27, 2013
The Office of Insurance Regulation (Office) today released “Federal Health Care Reform Consumer Premium Impact Notices” on its website (www.floir.com) pursuant to provisions of Senate Bill 1842 passed during the 2013 Legislative Session. These consumer premium notices were filed by 27 health insurers and health maintenance organizations who will be offering major medical health insurance plans on the new Federal Health Exchange.
The notices show the impact of Federal Health Care Reform on health insurance plan costs in Florida by comparing the premium for the new coverages to the premium costs of the insurer's most popular plan prior to Federal Health Care Reform. Consumers can view the summary sheet containing all companies and notices or select a particular health insurance company and look at the various health insurance plans available in either the individual and/or small group market. The plans vary by cost and by the level of benefits offered in each type of plan: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum.
Consumers can view this information by accessing the Office’s Federal Health Care Insurance Reform website page.
