  • S&P: ObamaCare enrollment hurt by Trump uncertainty

However, supporters of the Affordale Care Act say the increase came as people did not have insurance and neglected their health moved into the system for treatment.

President Donald Trump repeatedly claims that the Affordable Care Act is in a death spiral, and has withdrawn support for it in many ways, fostering turmoil that has prompted many insurers to drop out or raise rates by double digits.

Kellie Blackmon said she is basically in health insurance limbo. And for people seeking coverage in ACA marketplaces, now is the time to sign up.

Because there is an even shorter window to enroll, experts recommend avoiding last minute shopping.

Average premiums, or the price of coverage, will climb in most markets, but the size of price changes will vary widely.

Many more consumers will be able to enroll in bronze plans and pay nothing each month.

"I'm concerned that (the law) is going to go away or the premiums are going to be very high and we are going to be priced out", he said.

Nearly 2.1 million New York City residents receive health insurance through the ACA, but there are still more than 600,000 who remain uninsured, according to the state Department of Health. Last year, you had until after the holidays to sign up.

Premiums for popular "silver" level plans are climbing an average of 34 per cent in the 39 state marketplaces that operate through HealthCare.gov, according to the consulting firm Avalere. Rural areas will feel the brunt. While the future of Obamacare could be uncertain, Pennsylvania's acting insurance commissioner, Jessica Altman, assures qualified recipients "Right now, nothing has changed. you should shop just like you have in previous years". In other states you only have until December 15th. It's important that enrollees with a current Aetna plan go toHealthCare.govor make an appointment with an assister who can help walk them through their enrollment options.

That confusion was evident in a recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey which found more than a third of uninsured Americans polled either believed Obamacare was repealed or didn't know the law's status.

"That lack of awareness and confusion over what's available has kind of tripled and become so much more hard this year because of all the repeal efforts in Congress", said Erin Hemlin, a director with Young Invincibles. Eight states have only one insurer. Regina Schwartz, the director of the city Health Department's Public Engagement Unit, said that all New Yorkers benefit from greater enrollment. A coalition of local groups stepped in to pick up some of the slack. Accordingly, most insurers set premiums for 2018 as if CSRs would not be available, hence the large increases. While neither carrier that sold plans a year ago chose to leave the exchange for 2018, they were both approved for double-digit rate increases.
