Analysts call Fla. insurance rates 'opaque'

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Uninsured Floridians will have to wait awhile longer to find out exactly how much health plans will cost them under the new state exchange.

Kaiser Family Foundation analysts said Tuesday that Florida insurance officials organized the data in a way that makes it difficult to understand.

Kaiser's Gary Claxton said Florida's rate system was more difficult to follow than other states because some of the insurers have asked to keep portions of the rates from the public, calling them trade secrets. In other cases, it was difficult to tell which region insurers were covering or what tier of plan the filings applied to.

State insurance officials said they plan to release a new analysis that includes federal subsidies within the next week. The state exchanges launches Oct. 1.
