5 states with the highest premiums on the individual market so far

On average, Maryland residents face the highest unsubsidized monthly premium for the most common ACA individual marketplace plan next year, when compared to the eight other states that have released preliminary rate information so far, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation's 2019 premium tracker.

States are in the process of reviewing health insurers' premiums and participation in the 2019 ACA individual marketplace. As data become available for additional states, KFF will update its premium tracker for what a second lowest-cost silver plan and the lowest-cost bronze plan will cost per month without subsidies.

Insurers' rates and participation in the marketplaces will be finalized in late summer or early fall.

Here are the five states with the highest monthly premiums before subsidies for silver plans to date:

Vermont — $645 a month

Maryland — $622

New York — $594
Maine — $557
Virginia — $516
