Health care costs in Florida have increased an average of 27 percent since the state implemented its Obamacare exchange in 2017.
Florida’s rate jumped nearly 20 percent from 2016 to 2017.
According to data from the Florida Department of Health, the average Florida health plan price for an individual has increased an astonishing 1,814 percent since Obamacare went into effect.
The increase was more than double the nationwide average increase of 1,000 percent.
Florida has been hit hard by the high cost of health care and the state is not alone in this.
In many states, health care costs are higher than the national average and are often even higher than they were before the ACA went into force.
In 2017, California had the second-highest cost of medical care in the country at $1,973.46 per person.
However, in 2017 Florida was the only state with a rate above $1.00 per person, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
That year, California’s average per capita cost of $8,721.31 was far less than the average for the U.S. as a whole, at $16,724.18.
The reason Florida is so expensive is because of a combination of state-level restrictions on health insurance plans, high deductibles and copays, as well as the high number of people enrolled in the state’s Medicaid health insurance program.
In addition to the state-imposed requirements for pre-existing conditions, the state has a “silver” or “gold” program for those who have coverage through their employer.
The program covers everyone who has an employer-sponsored plan and doesn’t have a pre-payment for the individual.
According a 2017 report by the Kaiser Foundation, in 2018, more than 80 percent of Florida residents had health insurance through their employers.
In 2018, just over half of Florida’s residents had coverage through a non-profit group.
For many people, they get a subsidy to cover the cost of their premiums.
However a 2016 analysis by the Commonwealth Fund found that in Florida, the vast majority of individuals with employer-based insurance are able to get subsidies to help cover their premiums while others can’t.
According the report, most people in Florida are unable to qualify for Medicaid due to the federal law.
Many are unable or unwilling to buy their own coverage.
“The Florida program provides a generous subsidy to those who can afford it.
The average subsidy per enrollee is $1,-3.40,” according to a Kaiser Family Report from 2017.
That means that for every $1 the average enrollee pays in premiums, they can receive a $1 subsidy.
This means that those who are eligible for the subsidized coverage can have an average premium of $1 less than if they bought their own insurance.
In Florida, a person’s income is also used to determine eligibility.
The median household income for an enrollee was $56,800 in 2018.
However that number varies by household size, according the study.
The majority of enrollees are older adults with incomes of $75,000 and above.
In the state of Florida, people over 65 are not eligible for Medicaid.
“Obamacare mandates that Medicaid recipients be eligible for subsidies to purchase insurance.
It also allows states to establish the eligibility criteria for Medicaid,” according the report.
“There are two ways to make the premium payments in Florida: via pre-purchases or by deductibles, which are set by the insurer,” according a 2016 report by a Kaiser Foundation.
“For individuals with pre-tax incomes of less than $18,000 per year, they must have pre-paid coverage through an employer.”
Florida also has an individual mandate, which mandates individuals to buy insurance, pay a fine, and contribute to the government to pay for the government’s health care programs.
The mandate applies to individuals as well, including parents and children.
Florida also does not allow the state to charge premiums to residents of its cities or towns, according a Kaiser report from 2017: “The state does not have any limits on how much it can charge for coverage, including for premium subsidies.”
Florida has also taken steps to restrict access to affordable health care, which is especially problematic for low-income residents of the state.
According an analysis by Kaiser Family Foundations, “Florida imposes significant barriers to access to care, including limited health insurance choices and out-of-pocket expenses for health care.”
The most restrictive policies are those that require residents to pay out of pocket, which increases premiums.
“This means that many low- and moderate-income Floridians who can’t afford to buy private coverage are unable, for example, to afford an MRI, a colonoscopy or an endoscopy,” the report states.
Additionally, Florida’s new exchange is only available in certain areas.
The state of Mississippi, Georgia, New Jersey and South Carolina have all implemented their own exchanges, but only in certain cities.
