Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Medical claims costs filed by individual policy holders could rise as much as 62 percent by 2017 in California under the Affordable Care Act, according to a study released Tuesday by the nation’s leading group of financial risk analysts.

The costs are the biggest driver of health insurance premiums, and that could mean higher prices for residents who will buy individual policies through California’s health benefit exchange.
