An average of 60% increase in premiums across the board after the ACA was passed does not sound very ‘affordable’ to me.
It turns out that across the board, for all ages and family sizes, for HMO, PPO, and POS plans, premium increases averaged about 60 percent from 2013, the last year before ACA reforms took effect, to 2017. In same length of time preceding that, all groups experienced premium increases of less than 10 percent, and most age groups actually experienced premium decreases, on average.
Yes, It Was The 'Affordable' Care Act That Increased Premiums
