The President’s Affordable Care Act was sold to the public as a way to make health insurance more affordable. But the situation is different as federal and state exchanges have published premium rates, and individuals and families receive notices about 2014 rates and changes in coverage. It is clear that most insurance prices have increased dramatically.
Join us for a panel discussion about what insurance rates really look like under Obamacare. Heritage’s health care economist Drew Gonshorowski will discuss his newly released study on the pre- and post-Obamacare insurance rates for all states, looking at prices for individuals aged 27 and 50 as well as a family of four. James Mills, Assistant General Counsel of the Oklahoma Insurance Department, will provide a state perspective on Obamacare’s impact. And small business owner Larry Patterson will offer his personal experience with 2014 insurance policy changes and what that means for his 30 employees.
