Double-Digit Rate Increases Expected Under Mass. Mandatory Health Law; 5% Cap on Rate Hikes Proposed
Date:12/11/2007

nce shows that higher premiums and eroding benefits are certain under an insurance mandate that does not require health insurers, or the rest of the medical industry, to open their books and justify costs," said Carmen Balber with the nonprofit Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights (FTCR).

Massachusetts Senate President Therese Murray has proposed requiring all insurers to attend a public hearing and justify premium increases above 7%, and the panel overseeing the health care law voted last week to require insurers to submit explanations if premiums for the state-sold plans exceed the proposed 5% cap. Even the Massachusetts Association of Health Plans, representing many of the state's insurers, has proposed public hearings on insurance premium increases. Nevertheless, none of the proposals would give regulators the power to deny rate hikes found to be excessive.
