Over the past few months, we’ve seen a number of reports about proposed premiums for 2016 health plans available through the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchanges. We’re concerned there is still misinformation about how much premiums are expected to change and why.
To address this, Horizon’s coalition, the Council for Affordable Health Coverage (CAHC), has produced this Factsheet on 2016 ACA Premiums, providing:
- Background on 2016 ACA exchange rate filings;
- Explanation of why premiums are increasing;
- Key factors to keep in mind when examining proposed premiums; and
- Recommended policy considerations for this issue.
