Obamacare Drives Up Insurance Costs For North Carolinians

BY:

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.
