Analysis: Obamacare Rates for IL
CHICAGO, IL - An independent consulting
company says the health insurance plans offered on the new Illinois
marketplace offer a wide range of prices for consumers with reasonable
rates, especially after tax subsidies are calculated.
Marc Pierce of Chicago-based Stonegate Advisors says Illinois consumers have more choices than in many other states.
Price information has been difficult to come by because of technical glitches on the federal insurance shopping website.
Stonegate Advisors analyzed Illinois prices for The Associated Press.
analysis finds a 30-year-old fast food cook living in Chicago and
making $18,000 a year can expect to pay $98 a month, on average, for a
bronze plan after receiving a tax subsidy. The same fast food cook can
expect to pay $156 a month for a silver plan, also after a subsidy.
