Mid-level Obamacare health policies are going to be more expensive next year, a challenge for the administration as it seeks to boost enrollment. Premiums for the second-lowest-cost silver plans are going up by an average of 7.5 percent next year in the 37 states that use a U.S.-run website, the Department of Health and Human Services said Monday. Last year, those plans got 2 percent more expensive on average in 35 states. Those plans are used to calculate the government subsidies that most people get to help them buy coverage on the HealthCare.gov website.
