By JAVIER MANJARRESThe Associated Press just posted a story, which states that the average monthly health insurance plan premium in Florida is $328.
According to the HHS, this average is inline with the national average, even as Florida’s insurance rates should average out higher, considering that it has a ‘healthier’ elderly population than most states.
The data released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that the average premiums in Florida track closely with the national average.
Compared to estimated premiums in other states, Florida’s estimated premiums fall squarely in the middle.But the data shows there’s some variation based on where one lives.
Before tax credits kicked in, premium estimates were highest in Orlando and lowest in West Palm Beach and Tampa.-AP
Over the last 2 years, my monthly insurance premiums have gone from $115 to $215 a month. Blue Cross recently sent out a letter to me, and all of its other customers, which stated that due to the implementation of Obamacare, we should expect insurance premiums to go up.
Repealing Obamacare can’t come any sooner.
