Insurers Expected To Raise 2017 Premiums Significantly

The AP  (6/12, Alonso-Zaldivar, Murphy) reports that healthcare insurance premiums are expected to increase next year “because major insurers have taken significant financial losses” under the Affordable Care Act due to lower than expected enrollment, new customers requiring more care than anticipated, “and a government system to stabilize the markets had problems.” The article says some 10 million consumers will receive subsidies through the ACA, but those who earn “more than $47,520 for an individual and $97,200 for a family of four” will not qualify. In addition, those who obtain private insurance “outside of HealthCare.gov or a state marketplace” are not eligible for subsidies, regardless of their income.
