Wellmark Announces 2016 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 much higher than expected
  2. The volume and cost of prescriptions have increased significantly
  3. Cancellations or changes in coverage created a significant gap in forecasted premiums
