The more common usage in my part of Texas would be "I'm sorry, I don't know," because it is a "simple" problem; whereas "It's a pity," "Sadly," or even "Alas," would be for situations where the problem more profound (such as you have to pick up the president, pope, or mother-in-law).
Before I came to Germany from America, I never said "It's a pity." I would say, "It's too bad." But "it's a pity" must have been published in some basic vocabulary book here because almost all German speakers who speak English say, "It's a pity". isn't a usage you will likely hear from a native speakers because it expresses an irrational degree of regret over something trivial.

But the waiver that provides federal pass-through funding for reinsurance also resulted in a sharp and unexpected decrease in federal funding for Minnesota Care, the Basic Health Program that provides coverage for people with income between 138 percent and 200 percent of the poverty level (between ,642 and ,120 for a single person).
In addition, the elimination of federal funding for cost-sharing reductions (CSR) in October 2018 resulted in a funding cut for Minnesota Care, since the program is funded in large part by federal funds that would otherwise have been used to pay for premium subsidies and cost-sharing reductions in the exchange for the population that is instead eligible for Minnesota Care.
But the premium rebate program expired at the end of 2017.
For 2018, however, overall rates in the individual market decreased, thanks to the new reinsurance program that Minnesota created (details below).
