2015 Premium Increases Are Significantly Below Dire Obamacare Predictions

The Health Research Institutes at Price Waterhouse Coopers: “A picture of the 2015 insurance landscape is beginning to emerge. Publicly released premium increases across about 27 states and the District of Columbia vary widely, ranging from a low of -23% in Arizona to a high of 36% in Nevada. The average rate increase across states reporting data is 7.5%, while the average monthly premium (without subsidies) is around $384.”

The Hill: The data show modest increases “mostly falling short of dire predictions for ObamaCare‚Äôs second year.”

“The average national increase of 7.5 percent is ‘well below the double-digit increases many feared,’ HRI Managing Director Ceci Connolly wrote in an email.”

    Who are people going to believe? Studies like this or the anonymous internet commenter who says their premium has tripled due to “Obamacare”? I say the internet commenter.
