At Premera Blue Cross, we are committed to making healthcare work better for the people we serve. To do that, we believe healthcare needs to be:
It has been only three years since individuals and families could purchase plans through the Washington Health Benefit Exchange. When Premera started offering plans on the exchange, we were prepared to weather short-term marketplace volatility. We also expected a high learning curve, because products and rates were set without any customer or market data. We knew we would need to adjust as conditions evolved and more customer information became available.
As we head into 2017, we are still very much in the start-up phase, with providers and health plans across the nation searching for the right business models that deliver excellent patient care and customer experience, while also assuring long-term stability. Now with two years of data, we have filed changes for 2017 that we believe will begin to moderate rising costs, increase efficiency, and enable us to continue to offer competitive rates for our Washington members. And over time, we'll make healthcare work better.
Here's a closer look at what's ahead for the individual market beginning Jan. 1, 2017.
