WASHINGTON, DC – Every day patients and middle-class families are facing higher premiums. The Energy and Commerce Committee today released 21 graphics showcasing states where premiums have gone up by the national average of 25 percent or more. All of the graphics can be found on the committee’s newly created Health Care Central, a go-to resource in the effort to deliver meaningful health care reforms.
Additionally, the committee released a graphic showing the full picture of rate increases across every state.
A complete look at 2017 Obamacare premium increases across the country.
Last week the committee released a chart pack featuring eight infographics showcasing the truth about Obamacare – one where fewer plan options exist in counties across the country, and costs continue to rise each year, leaving vulnerable patients looking for help with nowhere to turn.
“Americans across the country are struggling as Obamacare continues to mount higher price tabs and fewer choices,” said Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR). “While people in states like Arizona, Oklahoma, and Tennessee have come to see rate hikes of 60 percent or more, Obamacare’s painful effects are impacting hardworking families from coast to coast.”
