golfinsailor quoted from the article . . . . .
"What they don’t seem to like so much, in reality, is the competitive impact of the Affordable Care Act, which is forcing health insurance companies into a contested marketplace – and seems to be driving down rates, state by state. The latest data arrived this week from New York, where insurance regulators announced that the new rates approved for 2014 will be 50 percent lower, on average, than current rates."
Now just to add a bit more truth to this . . . . .
NY has been and still is a "guaranteed issue" state - that is one of the reasons why their premiums were so high.
IF the ACA is successful in bringing in the young and the healthy and they can pay for their insurance, then the risk will even out and perhaps premiums will go down.
