Iowa Health Care Premiums Surge Due To Obamacare

Iowans are feeling the heat from Obamacare’s rising premiums, especially Wellmark customers with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

As of January 1, 2015, Blue Cross Blue Shield customers will experience a 14.5 percent increase in premiums, while Wellmark Health plans will see a 11.9 percent increase.

Wellmark cited new stipulations in the Affordable Care Act as cause for the surging premium costs.
