Premiums Drop For Most Popular ACA Plans In 2019

The average premium for the second-lowest-cost plans offering mid-level coverage will decline next year by 1.5 percent, the first time this benchmark has declined since the federal insurance exchange made its debut in 2014.  Though the average decrease is small, it is a very positive change from the double-digit increases experienced over the past two years.  See the New York Times, the Washington Post and USA Today for more information.
