FAQs: Premiums

Q: How are premiums set and why do they change?

A: Premium rates are set by law. Since the rates are indexed, they change automatically over time. They can also change when Congress passes new legislation affecting premiums.

Q: Where can I find Information About Current and Historical Premium Rates?

A: See our Premium Rates page for information about rates since 2007.   For information about the rates that were in effect before 2007, see our most current Data Tables. (S-39 for single-employer plans  and M-16 for multiemployer plans)
