MO Cuts Premiums for Pre-existing Condition Health Plan
The Missouri Health Insurance Pool announced that its board has cut premiums by 23 percent for new and current policyholders, as a means to boost enrollment in the state’s pre-existing conditions health plan. Missouri has had the program for a year, but has seen relatively few takers. Premiums range between $137 and $601 per month, depending on age and level of deductible. Although premiums pay for part of the pool, a majority of the cost is covered by an $81 million federal grant.
