The Health-Care Exchanges go live next week, October 1, 2013. I am kind of dreading it since I have already seen how the online applications are failing!

Today various media outlets start publishing projected premium rates. Of course I was interested in what they would be for New Hampshire.

The Wall Street Journal published, above, the LOWEST monthly premiums for a single 27-year old who wants to buy health insurance in one of the 36 states where the health-care exchange is run by the Federal Government.

The $186 premium in NH puts us at #24 out of the 36. So in terms of cost we are higher end of the list.

The average premium costs across all 36 states is $170 a month. So we are above that. But the Federal Tax Credit discounts don’t appear to be mentioned. These, which can be directly applied to the monthly premiums, WILL bring the cost down.

Lets wait and see. I am hoping that it will be good news.
