2016 Washington Health Insurance Premiums to increase by 15.2%

The Washington Policy Center reports that in 2016, Washington health insurance premiums will be on the rise. WPC reports that on average, premiums will rise by 15.2%, with increases reported ranging from 10.4% increase to 49.6%.

This applies to plans that are Obamacare compliant and purchased through the exchange.  

Dr. Stark reasons that these companies are raising premiums because now they have a better understanding of the costs of Obamacare.
