Health Insurance Rate Increases Blocked Temporarily

Yesterday, a judge in Massachusetts denied health insurance companies’ requests for rate increases. They were seeking to increase small business and individual health insurance rates anywhere from 8% to 32%.

The judge blocked a preliminary injunction that would’ve blocked the state Insurance Department’s refusal of the rate increases. The insurers can–and will–appeal, but for now they must continue offering health insurance plans at last year’s rates.
