Re: Enrollment in Obamacare Exchanges: How Will Your Health Insurance Fare?

This is an interesting report, ¬†Enrollment in Obamacare Exchanges: How Will Your Health Insurance Fare?. When I enter my data for Ohio I show a 100% increase in rates from 2013 to 2014 when I use Anthem’s web site to price it. Hmm…

Results

Individuals in most states will end up spending more on the exchanges. It is true that in some states, the experience could be the opposite. This is because those states had already over-regulated insurance markets that led to sharply higher premiums through adverse selection, as is the case of New York. Many states, however, double or nearly triple premiums for young adults. Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, and Vermont see some of the largest increases in premiums.[5]
