Insurance companies release their proposed prices for 2015

Health Insurance companies have to submit the prices they want to charge every year to the state's Division of Insurance for approval.

Those proposed premiums have now been made public.

"Most of the premiums are falling in a range of anything a 10 percent decrease to a 10 percent increase, that's where the bulk of them are sitting right now," Vincent Plymel, spokesman for the Colorado Division of Insurance, said.

Annual increases of 9 percent or more have been the norm in Colorado in recent years.

Regulators will now review the proposed insurance plans and prices to make sure they meet state and federal requirements, and that the prices are not too high or too low.

The total number of plans proposed to be offered in 2015 is slightly higher than this year.
