Seattle-based Group Health plans to raise rates

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, June 4, 2008

Individual and family insurance-plan holders with Seattle-based Group Health Cooperative will see their rates increase an average of about 10% beginning in July. Policyholders may have increases of 20% or more, though, depending on their age, health-risk factors and plan, said Group Health representatives. Group Health and several other Washington-based insurance companies blame rising medical-care costs for having to raise rates.
