More Carriers for HealthCare.gov & State Exchanges in 2015

Posted By PIA Western Alliance, Tuesday, September 30, 2014

The Department of Health and Human Services said consumers will have more insurance choices in 2015 than they did in 2014. HHSs official statement noted 77 new carriers will be available on the exchanges or marketplaces as theyre now called a 25% increase.


Who are those carriers and what will they be offering?

HHS would not say.  In an email the agency said, Because the issuer data for 2015 we used were still preliminary, we did not conduct any analysis of issuer participation at the local level.

McKinsey Center for U.S. Health System Reform offered the same information. It said the number of insurers will jump 26% in the 41 states it looked at. The HHS data is for 44 states and 36 of those are tied to HealthCare.gov. Eight states run their own exchanges.

HHS said the federal exchange will add 57 new carriers a 30% increase. The state-based exchanges will add six for a 10% jump.

This is what you’ll see in the PIA Western Alliance states:

  Alaska No increase

  Arizona Increase

  California No increase

  Idaho Increase

  Montana - Increase

  Nevada No data

  New Mexico No Increase

  Oregon No data

  Washington Increase
