Individual Insurance Market Had Profitable, Stable Performance in 2019

The individual insurance market’s financial performance remained stable in the first nine months of 2019, despite the repeal of the individual mandate tax penalty, according to a recent analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The individual market medical loss ratio (MLR) has improved in recent years and averaged 75% throughout the third quarter of 2019. Average gross margins per member per month, however, slightly declined to $131.17 from $146.13 in 2018. Average monthly premiums went up 1.7% from 2018 to 2019, while per person claims grew 6.7%.
