RNC Statement on Report Showing Health Insurance Premiums Doubled Since 2013

- May 23, 2017

WASHINGTON – Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel issued a statement following the release of a report from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) showing Obamacare premiums have doubled for individual health insurance plans since 2013:

“This report proves what Republicans have been saying for years—Obamacare was sold on lies that failed to deliver for the American people.  With premiums skyrocketing out of control and increasing by triple digits for many families, it is no surprise Obamacare is in a death spiral," said Chairwoman McDaniel. “It is no longer up for debate—the Democrats have saddled Americans with a healthcare system that has failed people all across our country. Meanwhile, Republicans continue to work to deliver more patient-centered, affordable, and flexible healthcare system that will care for generations to come.”


According to the report:

 
• All 39 states using Healthcare.gov experienced an increase in individual market premiums from 2013 – 2017.
• Average individual market premiums more than doubled from $2,784 per year in 2013 to $5,712 – an increase of 105%.
• 62% of states using Healthcare.gov had 2017 premiums double what was measured in 2013.
• Three states – Alaska, Alabama, and Oklahoma – saw premiums triple from 2013-2017.
