According to the Department of Health and Human Services an average plan in 2017 will increase by 58 percent in Alabama. That’s well over the national average of 25 percent.
According to the Obama Administration in 2016 the plan was 244 dollars a month. Next year it will be 384.
Congressman Bradley Byrne has a bill that passed the house, that would repeal the healthcare law.
“Since my first day in Congress, I have said that Obamacare is a complete disaster,” said Rep. Byrne. “These premium hikes only prove what Republicans have been saying for years, the entire bill must be repealed and replaced.”
Part of the reason behind the increase in Alabama is that United Healthcare pulled out of the exchange.
Next year Alabama will be one of 5 five states with only one Obamacare insurance provider.
