The Affordable Care Act–will healthcare really be more affordable?

As “Obamacare” gets going, it is unclear whether insurance premiums are going to go up or down. For example, New Hampshire’s healthcare exchange will launch in October with Anthem BlueCross BlueShield as the only insurer competing on the exchange. Is that an exchange at all? California and Colorado will have more than ten insurers offering plans.

Most markets have already seen modest increases in rates over the past few years after the passing of “Obamacare”, it looks like some may see a decrease in the future, while other States expect a double-digit increase in premium rates.
