New report finds competition lowers premiums by nearly 20 percent in the Health Insurance Marketplace

An important new press release from the Department of Health and Human Services reports that health insurance premiums are much less than had even been anticipated given changes to hold down those costs by ACA.  The report is available at: http://aspe.hhs.gov/health/reports/2013/MarketCompetitionPremiums/rb_premiums.pdf

“Today’s report shows that the Affordable Care Act is working to increase transparency and competition among health insurance plans and drive premiums down,” said Secretary Sebelius.  “The reforms in the health care law ensure consumers will have access to better coverage at a lower cost in 2014.”
