Webinar for Journalists: Understanding Insurance Premiums Under The Affordable Care Act

As part of its Media Fellowships Program, the Kaiser Family Foundation presents Covering Health Reform, a series of interactive webinars exclusively for journalists to address key aspects of the Affordable Care Act, its implications for consumers, and strategies for connecting the dots for different audiences.

The second webinar in the series took place on Tuesday, September 10, and looks at insurance rates and plan offerings in the new state-based marketplaces. The Co-Directors of the Foundation’s Program for the Study of Health Reform and Private Insurance, Senior Vice President Larry Levitt and Vice President Gary Claxton, gave a brief presentation on the early reports of rates, how and why they vary, and what consumers would pay after taking tax credits into account. They also answered journalists’ questions about the new insurance market rules taking effect in 2014 and how to interpret insurance rates.
