Young Men Saw Steep Premium Increases in 2014

Premiums for ACA plans increased an average of 78% for 23 year-old men and nearly 45% for 23-year-old women in 2014. HealthPocket compared the Obamacare market to the 2013 pre-reform market. Premiums increased 73% for 30-year-old men and 35% for 30-year-old women. Many young people don’t qualify for subsidies because the premium does not reach the percentage of income needed to trigger a subsidy. Premiums increased 37.5% for 63 year-old women and 22.7% for 63 year-old men. Kev Coleman, head of Research & Data at HealthPocket said, “The market trend we observed was an increase in average premium; this increase may have been obscured…by the fact that the first Affordable Care Act health plans were new and had no history against which to declare a rate increase within their state filing.” Some people get subsidies under the Affordable Care Act while others avoid a premium rate-up or rejection due to an expensive pre-existing condition, he added.
