Why do we need to increase premiums?

We increase premiums due to the rise in the cost of medical care. Most of your premium goes toward paying for medical and pharmacy claims for members. In fact, New York State requires that at least 82% of the premium you pay directly cover member medical costs. As the cost and use of pharmacy drugs and medical services go up, so does the cost of medical care we must pay. We expect that medical and pharmacy costs will continue to go up, on average, by approximately 7.0% in 2020 and 2021.
 

Will all plans have the same premium increase?

No, your premium will increase based on when your group is due to renew and what plan you have, including specific network and benefit details. This is why premiums may be different.
 

When will premiums increase?

Your premium will increase on your group’s renewal date in 2021. EmblemHealth will send you a notice before the renewal date to let you know how much your premium is increasing.
 

Are these rates final?

No, these rates are not final. Your final renewal rate may be different from the proposed increases shown above. DFS may approve, modify, or deny the adjustment. EmblemHealth will notify you of your final, approved rate at least 60 days before your renewal date.
 

We know this is a lot of information. If you have questions, please contact your account manager.
 

We are committed to supporting you.
