Preliminary 2017 rate projections

While it is still early in the year in terms of claims experience, preliminary rate projections are available. These projections can help you in the early stages of the budgeting process.

  • RBS/ANH HealthFirst, HealthFirst 250, HealthFirst 500: 4-6% increase
  • RBS/ANH HDHP: 10-12% increase (In 2015, the Board of Trustees adopted 6% plus trend increase in order to appropriately rate this plan. Although the increase will not be more than 6% plus trend, the actual increase may be less based on claims data.)
  • Group Health: 3-6% increase
  • Delta Dental, Willamette Dental, Vision Service Plan, Standard Life/LTD and ComPsych EAP: No increase

Claims data will continue to be received and evaluated over the next several months. The Trustees will meet in September to review and approve rates. A special For Your Health rate announcement will go out on Monday, September 26.
