Washington Examiner: Women’s Obamacare insurance will be ‘essentially worthless’

Women in general have a greater need for health insurance by virtue of their sex and likelihood of requiring pregnancy-related care and therefore shell out more money for health care than men do – something Obamacare was supposed to fix. Female enrollees, however, have apparently fallen victim to Obamacare architects who didn’t work into their equation the percentage of men who – in lieu of higher premiums – forego health insurance altogether. The Washington Examiner has the details: Post the ACA, insurance is now gender neutral, meaning you can't charge a woman more than you would charge a man for the same coverage. Like most of Obamaca...

Badger State residents enrolled in Obamacare next year can expect a 16 percent increase to their health-insurance premiums, according to the state insurance commissioner. The Washington Free Beacon has the story: “Consumers in Wisconsin will be facing an average 15.88 percent increase, but that is just an average,” said commissioner Ted Nickel. “Consumers in some areas may see increases as high as 30.37 percent.” For individuals whose health insurer exited the market and are left with no health insurance, the federal government will automatically re-enroll the individual in a new plan if the individual doesn’t purchase coverage ...
