State-by-State Monthly Marketplace Premiums

A new report shows that the Affordable Care Act will deliver on its promise to make health insurance more affordable and accessible for Americans who need it. Download the full report
(http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/docs/marketplace_premiums_ib_final.pdf)

The report, released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finds that in state after state, affordable options will be available through the Health Insurance Marketplace in 2014. Nearly all eligible uninsured Americans (about 95%) live in states with average premiums below earlier projections. And nearly all consumers (about 95%) will have a choice of health insurance companies,each of which offers a number of different plans.


The Marketplace will be run in partnership with States or fully by the HHS in 36 states. In these states, on average, consumers will have a choice of 53 health plans (bronze, silver, gold, and platinum plans), and young adults will have the additional option of low-cost catastrophic or youth plans.

Use the map below to explore a summary of the choices and premiums expected in those 36 states. Final, complete information about all the plans in each state Marketplace will be available via HealthCare.gov on October 1.

Late last night, we got some new information: the Department of Health and Human Servicesreleased (http://aspe.hhs.gov/health/reports/2013/MarketplacePremiums/ib_marketplace_premiums.cfm) selected details on plan prices for insurance premiums in the federally run exchanges that will operate in the majority of states.

Administration officials are spinning the new numbers as good news for Obamacare. “The prices are affordable,” Gary Cohen, a top HHS official,told (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303983904579095731139251304.html?m od=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories) The Wall Street Journal. The White House is happily declaring (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/09/25/delivering-affordable-care-act-marketplace-premiums-lower-expected) that the premiums are “lower than expected.” And (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=newssearch&cd=3&cad=rja&ved=0CEUQqQIoADAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmoney.cnn.com%2F2013%2F09%2F25%2F news%2Feconomy%2Fobamacare-premium-rates%2F%3Fhpt%3Dhp_t2&ei=tj1DUsjUJs--4APT6IHABw&usg=AFQjCNHUTOQLrHBbkIv91pG-ldxXY_xrAA&sig2=E8fycrswSvswXYTIi0RjeA&bvm=bv.53077864,d.dmg) multiple (http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/no-rate-shock-obamacare-premiums-lower-than-expected) news (http://www.dallasnews.com/business/health-care/20130924-obamacare-premiums-projected-to-be-lower-than-expected.ece) reports (http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/09/25/225858510/administration-touts-lower-than-expected-obamacare-premiums) on the numbers are following suit, running headlines on the “lower than expected” premiums coming under Obamacare.
But “lower than expected” is, of course, not the same as lower than they are currently. That’s not the comparison the administration wants to make. "Because of the Affordable Care Act, the health insurance that people will be buying will actually cover them in the case of them getting sick. It doesn't make sense to compare just the number the person was paying, you have to compare the value people are getting," HHS official Cohen told theJournal. Accordingly, there are no comparisons in the report to current premiums. All that lower than expected really means, then, is that premiums won’t go up as much as the Congressional Budget Office initially estimated (http://cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/ftpdocs/107xx/doc10781/11-30-premiums.pdf).

The Affordable Care Act is here to stay!


Obama rebukes 'irresponsible' Republicans in health care speech
By Carrie Dann, Political Reporter, NBC News

President Barack Obama dismissed what he called the “antics” on Capitol Hill over the budget to keep up the sales pitch on his namesake health care law Thursday.

Slamming “irresponsible” congressional Republicans who have threatened to shut down the government or prevent a raise in the debt ceiling if the Affordable Care Act is not defunded, a defiant Obama said the health law won’t be derailed.


“That’s not going to happen as long as I am president,” he said during an appearance at a community college just outside Washington D.C.’s Beltway. “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.”



"I won’t negotiate on anything when it comes to the full faith and credit of the United States of America," he said.

A question for you , Cigar, If the premium for a family of 4 is $700/mth, but ont $200 month with tax credits, do they have to pay the $700 month and wait for the credit? So they can just tell the kids that they can eat at the end of the year, right?

here's the problem. you can't keep saying things aren't true because you don't want them to be. are they being dead on? doubtful, because they don't have all of the information available yet.

but... we do know that the deranged hysteria, disinformation and misinformation being disseminated by the right is flat out wrong.
