“A comparison of the file for 2018 with a similar file for 2017 shows that:

  • The total number of plans will increase 10% next year, to 38,110.
  • The number of plans with no monthly out-of-pocket premium payments for the enrollees increased to 11,933 for 2018, up 22% from the 2017 zero-premium plan count.
  • The cost of the median 2018 plan is $43 per month. That’s for a local preferred provider organization plan in Jefferson County, West Virginia, with a $6,700 annual out-of-pocket maximum.”
