Insurance Medical Claims and the
Affordable Health Care Act
Dr. Robert B. Hackey, Professor of Health Policy and Management and Director of Health Policy Program at Providence College.
In a recent report from the Associated Press, a new study finds that insurance companies will have to pay out an average of 32 percent more for medical claims on individual health policies under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
What does that mean for you? It could increase premiums for at least some Americans.
If you are uninsured, or you buy your policy directly from an insurance company, you should pay attention. But if you have an employer plan, like most workers and their families, odds are you don't have much to worry about.
