Affordable Care Act Costs Released For 36 States

By Jordan Rau

Tue, Oct 1 2013

Consumers trying to price health insurance in the new federally run health marketplaces may have been having trouble getting through the government’s main web site,, but there’s a backdoor way to see the plans that are being offered in 36 states.

The Department of Health and Human Services has posted premiums for more than 17,000 plans on its web site. The data lists each plan by insurer and the plan name and the monthly premium rate for a child, a 27-year-old,a family with 30-year-old parents and two kids, a single-parent family with two 30-year-olds, and a 40-year-old couple without children.

The plans are also listed by the metal tier (platinum, gold, silver or bronze) that details how comprehensive the coverage is, and what kind of plan it is (HMO, PPO, etc.). You can also search for plans by state and county.

One spreadsheet shows premiums for health insurance and a second shows premiums for stand-alone dental plans. Also for small businesses, there are health premium rates and rates for stand-alone dental plans.

This post was updated at 9:30 p.m. to correct the number of plans on the web site.
