ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota has the lowest average premiums nationwide on three health insurance plans that will be sold under the federal health care overhaul.

The Obama administration is releasing information Wednesday on premiums and plans in 36 U.S. states where the federal government is managing the overhaul. Minnesota is not among them, but the U.S. Department of Human Services released information comparing weighted average premiums among 47 states and the District of Columbia.

Three states didn’t set premiums in time to be included.

Minnesota will offer average monthly premiums of $144 for a plan at the least expensive level of coverage, and $192 for two plans in the second least expensive. No other state offers lower rates in any of the three categories.

MNsure.com, the state’s health plan portal, launches next week.
