SALT LAKE CITY -- The Obama administration has revealed premiums and insurance plan choices in Utah and 35 other states where the federal government is launching health insurance marketplaces.
Utah's uninsured residents will be able to shop for coverage next week on the marketplace, which is one of the hallmarks of the new health care overhaul.
Premiums for a mid-range, benchmark plan in Utah will average $266 a month for an individual, which is below the national average of $328 a month.
Utah consumers will have an average of 82 health plans to choose from, more than the national average of 53 options.
While the federal government will run Utah's marketplace for individuals, the state will continue running its marketplace for small businesses, which has been operating for several years.
