Report: ACA Might Raise Some Consumers’ Premiums by 40%
The Affordable Care Act might increase premiums for some consumers by as much as 40%, but many other individuals will see their overall costs drop as a result of the subsidies provided under the law, according to a report released by research organizationÂ Center Forward. The survey corroborates the findings of a March Society of Actuaries report that highlighted wide disparities in the projected claims cost increases among states.
