Connecticut regulators approve double-digit health insurance increases

Hartford Courant, January 12, 2010

Three of the top five insurers in Connecticut have received regulatory approval to raise their rates by double-digit percentages for 2010. A state legislator says regulators aren't doing their job, but both the Connecticut Insurance Department and health insurance companies say that premiums are only keeping pace with medical costs, the Hartford Courant reports. Rate increases recently were released in a report by the Office of Legislative Research, as requested by state Rep. James Shapiro.
