  • High-deductible health plan trends are projected to increase by just over one percentage point to 11.9%
  • The lowest trend rates for Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO) and point-of-service (POS) plans are expected in the Midwest, at 9.5%.
  • The highest trend rates for PPO and POS plans are expected in the Northeast at 10.9%
