The Insurance Division approved a 2.2% rate increase for small employers who have coverage through Providence Health Plans.

The rate hike will impact about 30,000 people over nine months, and range between 1.88 and 5.4 percent.
“We're doing all we possibly can to get our rate increases to as low a figure as possible,” said Jack Friedman, CEO of Providence Health Plans.
