14 Michigan Health Insurance Companies Submit Plans for Federal Exchange
LANSING - The Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) received filing information from 14 health insurance companies seeking inclusion in the federally-run Michigan health insurance exchange, set to launch on October 1, 2013. Nearly all of the companies submitted plans for the individual market and 11 offered plans for the small group market.
“I am pleased with the number of companies that submitted Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) in Michigan,” said DIFS Director Kevin Clinton. “The large amount of participation will foster competition and provide many choices for Michigan families and businesses.”
While Michigan’s health insurance exchange will be a federally-facilitated exchange, DIFS will review all plans to ensure compliance with state and federal laws. DIFS anticipates that all filing data, including rate information, will be made public on October 1st, after reviews are completed by DIFS and the federal government.
