The Oregon Insurance Division has posted individual and small-group rate proposals for 2014.
The division has posted rate proposals from a total of 16 conventional carriers and two new CO-OP plans for the exchange and non-exchange markets. The division marked proposals from carriers that plan to participate in the state's Cover Oregon health insurance exchange program with asterisks.
In April, Cover Oregon published an initial list of carriers that had suggested that they might participate in the exchange program. Large that have dropped out of the list of contenders include Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon and units of UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE:UNH).
Regence and UnitedHealth will both participate in the state's individual and small-group non-exchange market.
