Some Californians could see 30% hike for individual health plans

Californians who buy individual health plans will see their premiums increase an average of 14% next year under the Affordable Care Act, but payments will largely depend on income, age and where they live, according to a new report released Thursday by California’s healthcare exchange.

The report commissioned by Covered California found the increase is largely due to an influx of people who previously could not afford health insurance or were denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
