Many Insurers Don’t Plan to Raise Rates Because of COVID

by Jinghong Chen
More than half of insurers surveyed said they do not anticipate raising health plan premiums due to the pandemic, according to a recent poll conducted by eHealth, Inc. The private insurance marketplace surveyed more than 4,700 consumers and 26 insurance industry representatives on the impact of COVID-19, technology and public policy reforms. Among the respondents, 60% favor expanding the Medicare program in some form, while half of current Medicare beneficiary respondents say Medicare should continue to be run by public and private cooperation between government and insurance companies.
