Premera Blue Cross has refiled a rate change for its individual health plans - this time seeking a 4.7 percent increase. We disapproved it's earlier request for a 3.1 percent increase in September. We have 60 days to review the request and make a decision.
The new rate, if approved would take effect on Jan. 1, 2012 and would impact approximately 3,874 people.
