Worthy Christian News » Over 3,000 Counties Examined: Obamacare Increased HealthCare by over 40%

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– In a study compiling data from 3,137 of a possible 3,144 counties in the United States, the underlying cost of individually-purchased health care jumped 41 percent in 2014, Forbes reported.

There are hundreds of aspects of Obamacare that people argue over. But there’s one question that matters above all others: does the Affordable Care Act live up to its name? Does it make health insurance less expensive? Last November, our team at the Manhattan Institute published a study indicating that Obamacare had increased the underlying cost of individually-purchased health insurance in the average state by 41 percent in 2014, relative to 2013. We’ve now redone the study on a county-by-county basis, complete with a brand-new interactive map. Depending on where you live, the results may surprise you.

Our new county-by-county analysis was led by Yegeniy Feyman, who compiled the county-based data for 27-year-olds, 40-year-olds, and 64-year-olds, segregated by gender. We were able to obtain data for 3,137 of the United States’ 3,144 counties. — Source
