Vermont First State to Post Health Care Exchange Rates

Vermonters who plan to seek health insurance through the federal Affordable Care Act can now begin to make choices about the coverage they want.



On Monday, the state posted the rates that could be charged for small business owners and individuals through the state's health care marketplace for various levels of coverage.

The rates, which are subject to review by regulators, range from about $1,700 a month for platinum coverage for a family to about $925 a month for catastrophic care, but those figures don't take into account health care subsidies that would significantly reduce the rates.

The state's marketplace, to be known as Vermont Health Connect, is due to be up and running by Oct. 1 with coverage to start Jan. 1.
