In California, Premiums Could Rise As Much As 146 Percent

ObamaCare “Will Increase Individual-Market Premiums In California By As Much As 146 Percent.” “But the data that Lee released tells a different story: ObamaCare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.” (Avik Roy, Op-Ed, “Rate Shock: In California, ObamaCare To Increase Individual Premiums By 64-146% ,” Forbes, 5/30/13)

Covered California’s Release Was Misleading, It Compared Health Plans In The Individual Market To “Highly Regulated Plans That Small Employers Purchase For Their Workers.” “Except that Lee was making a misleading comparison. He was comparing apples—the plans that Californians buy today for themselves in a robust individual market—and oranges—the highly regulated plans that small employers purchase for their workers as a group.” (Avik Roy, Op-Ed, “Rate Shock: In California, ObamaCare To Increase Individual Premiums By 64-146% ,” Forbes, 5/30/13)

  • · The Wall Street Journal: Covered California Made A “False Comparison.” “But Mr. Lee and his fellow regulators were making a false comparison.” (Editorial, “ObamaCare Bait And Switch,” The Wall Street Journal, 6/3/13)

The Wall Street Journal: “The Cheapest ObamaCare Plan For A Typical 25-Year-Old-Man Is Roughly 64% To 117% More Expensive Than The Five Cheapest Policies Old Today.” “The conservative analyst Avik Roy consulted current rates on the eHealthInsurance website and discovered that the cheapest ObamaCare plan for a typical 25-year-old man is roughly 64% to 117% more expensive than the five cheapest policies sold today. For a 40 year old, it’s 73% to 146% .”(Editorial, “ObamaCare Bait And Switch,” The Wall Street Journal, 6/3/13)

Young Americans Are Expected To Face “Sticker Shock” From ObamaCare

Despite Obama’s Promise To Lower Health Care Premiums For Everyone, “Healthy Young People – The Vast Majority Of Whom Voted For Obama In 2012 – Are Seeing Their Costs Go Up.” “When he was selling his health care overhaul as a presidential candidate and then as commander-in-chief, Barack Obama repeatedly argued that the plan would lower insurance premiums for everyone. But in California, at least, healthy young people — the vast majority of whom voted for Obama in 2012 — are seeing their costs go up.” (Andrew Kaczynski, “Flashback: Obama Promised Lower Health Care Insurance Premiums For Everyone,” Buzzfeed, 6/3/13)

A Recent Survey Found That ObamaCare May “Triple Premiums For Some Young And Healthy Men.” “The federal health care law could nearly triple premiums for some young and healthy men, according to a forthcoming survey of insurers that singles out a group that might become a major public opinion battleground in the ObamaCare wars.” (Brett Norman, “ACA Premium Sticker Shock Could Fuel Foes,” Politico, 2/4/13)

As ObamaCare Is Implemented, Insurance Premiums In The Individual Market For A Healthy 27 Year Old Will Be “Nearly 90 Percent Higher.” “The survey, fielded by the conservative American Action Forum and made available to POLITICO, found that if the law’s insurance rules were in force, the premium for a relatively bare-bones policy for a 27-year-old male nonsmoker on the individual market would be nearly 190 percent higher.” (Brett Norman, “ACA Premium Sticker Shock Could Fuel Foes,” Politico, 2/4/13)

  • Insurers Estimated That A Healthy 27 Year Old Man From Texas Will Pay $99 More In Health Insurance Premiums Due To ObamaCare. “The insurers estimated that a healthy 27-year-old man in Austin, Texas, who pays $54 a month for insurance this year would have a $153 premium if ObamaCare’s market regulations were in effect.” (Brett Norman, “ACA Premium Sticker Shock Could Fuel Foes,” Politico, 2/4/13)

The Washington Post’s The Fact Checker: Young Adults Will “Have Sticker Shock When They See What Happens To Their Premiums Starting In 2014.” “The law’s provisions, especially the requirement for essential benefits, will almost certainly increase premiums, though tax subsidies will help mitigate the impact for a little over half of the people in the exchanges. But a lot of other people — such as a young male who currently has a plan that does not include all of the required benefits — are likely going to have sticker shock when they see what happens to their premiums starting in 2014.” (Glenn Kessler, “President Obama’s Claim That Insurance Premiums ‘Will Go Down,’” The Washington Post’s The Fact Checker, 8/10/12)

Obama Has Failed To Lower Health Care Premiums By $2,500

As A Candidate, Obama Promised That His Health Care Reform Would Save American Families $2,500 By The End Of His First Term. OBAMA: “If you’ve got health insurance, we’re going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2500 per family per year. And we will not wait 20 years from now to do it or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president of the United States of America.” (Senator Barack Obama, Remarks At Campaign Event, Columbus, OH, 2/27/08)
