Skip to comments.Study: Average Premiums for Young Women to Increase 193% (Obamacare's War on Women)
Posted on 10/24/2013 6:23:16 AM PDT by Qbert
Healthy young women will see their premiums rise by an average of almost 200 percent under Obamacare, with increases occurring in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to a new study.
Earlier this month, the American Action Forum released an analysis that found the average 30-year-old male nonsmoker would see his premiums rise 260 percent.
Using the same metrics, the organization found that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would be just as harsh on women trying to purchase bronze level plans, the cheapest insurance available in the marketplace.
All 50 states and the District of Columbia saw insurance rate increases, with 42 of those states experiencing triple digit percentage increases in premiums for the lowest-priced coverage, the study said. Pre-ACA premiums for a 30-year-old nonsmoking woman average $74.49 monthly, while post-ACA premiums average $188.72 per month, a $114.23, or 153 percent, increase.
Overall, states averaged a 193 percent increase in premiums for 30-year-old female nonsmokers.

Probably that free birth control kickin' in.
I get sick every time I see these dummies with their “I LOVE MY OBAMACARE” bs.
So it’s the under 30’s that voted for this idiocy. Welcome to your nightmare ass holes! Perhaps now you’ll try and learn something about history and economics?
Getting Fluked by Obamacare.
They voted for the increase, so no sympathy here.
The irony of it all is that, once they realize that it isn’t free or cheaper than it was previously, they’ll opt to pay the penalty.
Insurance is supposed to be for somewhat unlikely events that would be devestating if they were to occur. It's supposed to be cheap enough so that it's better to pay the premium than take the risk.
How come I learned this in Economics 101 but people coming up with this stuff are clueless? At the very least, the program should not be mandated. Let people make their own decisions and (I'm sorry) die in the streets if they can't afford the treatment and didn't get the insurance.
It's what we used to call survival of the fittest.
The “media” will set about directing them to believe this is Ted Cruz’ fault, especially among the single women, because they could never entertain the idea their surrogate husband Obama could be at fault.
Yep. The young Sandra Fluke followers get a harsh introduction to the real world...
It is now time for everyone to feel the full effects of this law.
Everyone, strap a bomb to your chest! We’re all terrorists now.
HA! That post is going to keep the entire NSA staff busy for the next five weeks, I’m sure.
But they get free blood clots , I mean oral contraceptives
But now they get coverage for mental health and drug addiction.

I don't even know if they are required to take Econ 101 anymore (and if they are, who knows what the Marxist professors are really teaching them?). The extent of their economic "knowledge" is basically reading whatever fact-twisted hairball Paul Krugman has coughed up today.
... and more free abortions means more breast cancer.
Actually 29 seems to be the cut off.
People under 30 can actually only choose catastrophic and pay nothing all the while getting free preventive care( I can’t find what that actually means)
They would though have to pay $6250 before they get gov’t care.
but the odds are good for them
Even after age 30 you can make up to 400% of poverty level and still have the taxpayer subsidize you . get subsidized for premiums, copays and even deductible
It is the reat of us who make above 400% of poverty level who will pay out the nose AND pay for the rest’s insurance.
I hope there are enough females who will get hosed by obamacare that they will finally start complaining
"There's a new sheriff in town."
think of all the free birf control pills
oh wait weren’t they $8 a month at walmart?
“I don’t even know if they are required to take Econ 101 anymore...”
Shoot...they can’t even balance a checkbook.
Of course, if I could print money, I’d probably never balance MY checkbook again, either.
...and they will believe it too! So sad!
I hope everyone who is a Democrat who voted for Obama gets hosed by Obamacare!
I feel the same way as you. We somehow want them to regret their decision. Unfortunately, they are so ignorant that they won't even connect Obama to this debacle. The media will see to that. Ultimately, it will be the 'evil' insurance companies, 'greedy' doctors, 'obstructionist' republicans, etc., that will be blamed for ruining a perfectly good program. Obama himself will lead the charge. It will be the ultimate example of the "Limbaugh Theorum".
The choice was to either get hosed by ObamaCare or hosed by RomneyCare.
Romney said Obamacare was a state issue that the federal government was to stay out of. I believe him.
It was never a threat from Romney. I wish he had won. We would be way off.
You anti-Romney people are getting tiresome.
Yes, “because Republicans tried to de-fund Obamacare, the website now does work at all”.
possibly, but not conclusive
the “poverty level” is a bullshit relativistic term
the poverty level is a bullshit relativistic term
It surely is
and is only used to get more people getting OUR money
Hard to come to a scientific conclusion when no one bothers to even do a study on it.
