So this is what Democrats feel is wonderful and The Republicans refuse to deal with…
Next year, average benchmark premiums for Obamacare plans are expected to rise 15 percent more than they did this year, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office.
“In 2018, the agencies project, the average benchmark premium will be roughly 15 percent higher than it was in 2017.
Additionally, premiums for benchmark plans are expected to rise an average of 5 percent each year from 2017 through 2027.
The budget office projects that average premiums will total $3,400 for a 21 year old, $4,800 for a 45 year old, and $9,800 for a 64 year old this year.
So what happened to it going down $2500? Hmmmm???
Additionally, the report finds that due to higher premiums, the number of uninsured individuals is expected to increase.
“For 2026, the agencies’ projection of the number of people obtaining subsidized coverage through the marketplaces is now 4 million smaller, and the projected number of uninsured people is now 3 million larger, than they were in CBO’s March 2016 baseline projections,” the budget office said. “Between 2017 and 2018, the number of uninsured people rises by 2 million in the agencies’ projections, mainly because premiums in the nongroup market are expected to be higher.”
Gee, If we get rid of Obamacare millions will be uninsured was fear-mongering.
Just the facts.
And people hate facts these days.
63 Counties Projected to Have No Obamacare Insurer in 2018 according to a report from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
1,472 counties will only have one insurer participating on the exchange. “It is also projected that 1,472 counties—over 45 percent of counties nationwide—could have only one issuer in 2018. This could represent more than 2.6 million Exchange participants with only one health insurance option, which means they will not have any choices.”
Individuals who will be living in an area where there is no insurer offering coverage will still be bound by Obamacare’s individual mandate to purchase health insurance or be forced to pay a penalty.
This is what you are fighting to keep?
