Vermont health insurers raising rates amid uncertainty

One of the two private insurers administering the Catamount system will be raising its premiums by 21 percent for 2011. A single person paying an unsubsidized rate for Catamount through MVP Healthcare will be charged $527 a month as a result of the increase approved by state regulators. Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Vermont will meanwhile be charging $414 a month for the same policy.
