Nebraska Department of Insurance Releases Proposed Rates for Health Care Overhaul

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska Department of Insurance has released proposed premium rates submitted under the federal health care overhaul.

The department says the sample premium rates posted on a state website are only a preliminary tool for comparison and that there will be lower-cost options available to Nebraskans.

Tom Gilsdorf of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska says the comparisons are not apples-to-apples because coverage that will be sold for 2014 is new and must cover a range of benefits that were not covered in the past.

Individuals without health insurance will be required by the Affordable Care Act to buy coverage come October.

More information can be found on the Nebraska DoI website.
