Where Obamacare premiums will soar

New York (CNNMoney) – Get ready to shell out more money for individual health insurance under Obamacare ... in some states, that is.

While many residents in New York and California may see sizable decreases in their premiums, Americans in many places could face significant increases if they buy insurance through state-based exchanges next year.

    Humm,
    Didn't Ohio and Florida go for Obama? It appears that free lunch isn't so free after all.

    "If you buy your insurance through state based exchanges"! If your rates go up through a private provider, you should be angry at that providers greed, not the law trying to control the greed.

    I thought the exchange was suppose to make premiums go down as well as co pays and deductibles too. Guess it will only happen for some not all.

    I can't speak for Ohio but as far as Florida goes, this article is misleading at best and downright dishonest at worst. Here in Florida our illustrious governor and his gerrymandered band of rethug legislature recently passed legislation that allows insurers to raise rates on medical policies written after the 2010 enactment of the ACA – by as much as they want! And they've ADMITTED that they did so to make Floridians HATE "Obamacare" – despite the fact that they've decreed that Florida, like most other rethug states have no intention of participating in "Obamacare"! Shame onrethugs nationwide for their hatred of and participation in the wonton destruction of the middle class over the last 32 years, and shame on the writer of this article for carrying their water!

    I have always wondered about how this is supposed to work in swing states. Republican governors are not participating and Democratic governors are participating. Ohio, has a Republican. If they elect a Democrat next time, does that mean that they will switch, and if so, how fast? What happens to Ohio if they elect a Republican later on down the road? Will states just keep flipping back and forth?

    ObamaCare is the worst bill ever passed in the Congress........and it only passed by paying off some Dems to change their votes, under the table. In other words, graft was involved on getting it to pass.

    Nope. Both states voted for Republican governors and legislatures, and so neither state is participating in Obamacare. Which means that the higher premiums being paid by the residents in those states have little to nothing to do with the ACA.

    Read the article: it clearly states that CA will be benefiting from the ACA.

    I thought it was up to governors to be sure they had the exchanges set up properly so that prices would go down.

    Oh well, the highest ACA will still be lower than Private Insurance Companies.

    Why isn't CNN talking about W's heart surgery?
