In many states, health insurance providers are disclosing what they plan to charge for coverage in 2015. That’s not happening in Missouri.
Although many states have authorities that review insurance rates before they’re posted, Missouri lacks that sort of authority.

And, amid renewed interest in local authority over health insurance stemming from the Affordable Care Act, advocates are calling for that to change.
