Connecticut health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Access Health CT is a successful state-run exchange. As of 2019, Connecticut has joined New York in allowing uninsured pregnant women to enroll in health coverage outside of open enrollment. Average individual market premiums are 3.65% higher in 2020 in Connecticut than they were in 2019, and the exchange is allowing uninsured residents to enroll through April 17, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Colorado health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Colorado has a state-run exchange, Connect for Health Colorado. Colorado enacted legislation in 2019 to develop a reinsurance program, as well as legislation that directed the state to recommend a public option design that the state hopes to make available by 2022. Rates dropped by an average of 20% for 2020, but smaller premium subsidies resulted in higher net premiums for some enrollees.

Washington health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Washington runs its own exchange, Washington Healthplanfinder. Carrier participation in the exchange is fairly robust, with nine insurers offering plans for 2020. Average rates decreased and there are only six counties with just a single insurer for 2020, down from 14 in 2019. Bronze plans are available statewide for 2020, which was not the case in recent years. Lawmakers are considering a bill that would create state-based premium subsidies as of 2022.
