HHS report: Dire warnings of ObamaCare price spikes wrong
The Hill

A new report from the Obama administration finds that ObamaCare premiums rose 8 percent last year, pushing back on warnings of larger price hikes.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) report released Tuesday finds that ObamaCare premiums rose 8 percent on average — from $356 a month to $386 a month — from 2015 to 2016.

Once the ObamaCare tax credits that help 85 percent of consumers afford their plans are factored in, the average premium increase was even smaller: $102 to $106, or 4 percent.
