Received a letter from my current carrier Anthem Blue Cross for a rate increase of 11%. Is this in line with other insurers or I should look for a better deal (possibly from other insurers), rate decrease, etc. (I'm fine with my current 2016 Anthem Blue Cross premium amount.)
A lot of people aren't so good with the ol' reading comprehension, Jer. Yup - Providence. I'll probably get something else. I can take the premiums off my schedule C but that only takes the sting out a little bit - no subsidies and we just squeaked by on the max AGI this year for the kids insurance - $50 under. I may run out of deductions soon - I seem to be making too much money lately. Still pondering trying to figure out how to S corp and get small group rates as they are a bit more stable, and to force personal AGI down, but they took away the ability to get small group rates without hiring a non-family member a couple years ago.
Says state wide increase is 13%. You can also find your region of CA and see what your areas average rate change is. Thanks, that hit the spot! I am in Region 7 (Santa Clara County) .......................................................... page 67/130.
