North Carolinians across the state are seeing their insurance premiums rise, WNCT-NC reports.
“Almost everyone I’ve talked to, their insurance has gone up,” said Kathleen Forrest, a North Carolinian who needs health insurance. “If their insurance is going up a hundred, two hundred, five hundred dollars a month…what are they not getting? What are they not doing for their families?”
Al Delia, a professor at East Carolina University’s medical school, said that the newly insured have a steep learning curve understanding the complicated insurance market.
Delia also noted that many of those currently insured were being told they couldn’t see particular doctors.
