Daines Statement on Obamacare Rate Increases

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement after the Obama administration announced that premiums for Obamacare will increase by an average of 25 percent next year. 

“Montanans are stuck with insurance rate hikes that are more than the jaw dropping 25 percent national average for next year,” Daines stated. “Obamacare isn’t affordable and needs to be replaced with state-driven solutions that puts patients at the center of the healthcare equation.” 

Average increases for Montana’s top three insurance providers range from 27 to 58 percent, with the highest increase for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Montana policies.
