Bad news for Rhode Island health insurance consumers: the insurance commissioner just approved several premium increases.

The health insurance rate hikes, which become effective next year, are as follows:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island: 9.8% for small and large business health insurance
  • United HealthCare: 12.3% for firms with under 50 employees, and 8.4% for larger companies
  • Tufts: 11% and 10.2%, respectively

On the bright side, these rate hikes are lower than those originally requested.
