This update to our Data Watch series shows that since 2017, Arkansas has had the lowest marketplace benchmark premium among the surrounding states. Arkansas had the 14th-lowest premium in the United States in 2023. Average benchmark premiums were calculated using the second-lowest-cost silver plan for a 40-year-old.

These results are similar to those reported by the Urban Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in April 2022. See our blog post on that research report.
