Health insurances premiums higher than average in Wisconsin

Posted:
MADISON, WI (WREX) -

It will cost more for Wisconsin residents to buy health insurance under the new federal care plan than it will for the average American.

The state ranks 36th in average premium costs per month based on information released Wednesday. The U.S. Department of Human Services data compares the weighted average premiums of 47 states and the District of Columbia.

The mid-level plan will cost an average of $361 in premiums each month in Wisconsin. The national average is $328.

The costs do not take into account any tax credits individuals may be eligible for. The actual cost will depend on an individual's circumstances, including where they reside.
