No individual healthcare plans filed for 2 Washington counties for 2018

Washington State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler reported that two counties had no individual healthcare coverage plans filed for 2018.

The filing deadline for the plan year was June 7.

No insurers had submitted to offer individual coverage in Klickitat County and Grays Harbor County. As of March, Klickitat County had 1,119 enrollees in the individual market, and Grays Harbor had 2,227.

Coverage areas may change as the state reviews rates.

If no health insurer is available for next year in a particular county, the only coverage option is through the state's high-risk pool. The program is not a qualified insurer under the Affordable Care Act, so subsidies would not be available for participants.

Eleven insurers filed plans for the state's individual market, six within the exchange and seven outside the exchange. Two will be selling both inside and outside the exchange.
