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’s 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.”
