Burwell on Arizona Insurance Increasing 117%: Many Will Receive ‘Subsidies’

‘Even in Arizona where 75 percent of the folks actually have subsidies that will help them so that they’re insulated from those changes’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
BURWELL: "You know, of course across the board we don't want to see premium increases, and as I said, in the employer base market we've seen that premium growth slowing. Even in Arizona where 75 percent of the folks actually have subsidies that will help them so that they're insulated from those changes. Additionally in the state of Arizona, because they did have lower rates to begin with, will see a large number of people who are eligible now for the subsidies."
