Both of Maine’s existing providers of Affordable Care Act individual health insurance say they plan to offer coverage again in 2019.

Following Anthem’s exit from the ACA marketplace at the end of 2017, only Lewiston-based Community Health Options and Massachusetts-based Harvard Pilgrim Health Care continue to offer ACA-compliant individual health insurance in Maine. Health insurance providers have until June 4 to submit their 2019 rate requests to the Maine Bureau of Insurance.

Nearly 76,700 Mainers had individual ACA coverage in the first quarter, down 10 percent from 85,300 a year earlier, according to the bureau. Another 60,000 Mainers had ACA-compliant small group coverage through their employers.
