Wellmark Announces 2017 Rates and Discusses ACA Plan Trends

Wellmark operates in both the state of Iowa and South Dakota. Regardless of state, we are seeing the same overall trends with our Individual Under 65 ACA plans:

  1. Large claims are skyrocketing
  2. Special Enrollment periods are a concern
  3. Continued increases in the volume and cost and of specialty drugs
  4. A few members are driving the costs for everyone
