How to get more out of Obamacare insurance coverage
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has given Americans more than they expected.
The president and other critics of the health care law have accused the Affordable Care Law of creating a system in which consumers can’t always choose the level of coverage they want.
But a new study from Harvard Medical School finds that the ACA has not only been effective in providing coverage for Americans who are not eligible for it, it has also increased consumer choice.
The study, published in the journal Health Affairs, shows that the health law’s coverage expansions increased consumer choices by lowering the costs of health insurance coverage.
The study found that while the number of people enrolled in ACA health plans rose, the number that chose a different insurance option rose as well.
It also found that people who were already insured in the health insurance market were less likely to change plans or use different health care providers because of the ACA.
The new findings come from an analysis of nearly two million private health insurance claims filed by employers in 2014.
The Harvard study analyzed claims filed from January 1, 2014, to October 31, 2015, and found that about 3.7 million people enrolled on ACA plans from January 2014 to October 2015.
It found that 6.4 million of those enrolled were eligible for subsidies for the first year.
The remaining 2.3 million people, or 3.6 percent, were eligible to buy insurance through an individual market or through state and local governments.
The Harvard study found the ACA’s coverage expansion has reduced the number who bought insurance through the individual market, or people who are enrolled in plans that do not offer coverage, by nearly 4 million people.
But the new study found those enrolled in the state-based insurance market increased the number buying health insurance on average by 1.7 percent.
The insurance premiums increased by 0.9 percent.
This meant that people on ACA coverage plans increased their average premiums by 0,098 dollars, or about $16 a month.
This is more than double the $12.37 increase the Harvard study estimates would have been experienced if the ACA had been enacted before the start of the 2014-15 year.
It is also worth noting that the Harvard analysis does not take into account subsidies for people with pre-existing conditions, which could increase the premium prices.
This could be a concern because the ACA offers subsidies to people with prior health conditions, but the analysis does find that people with health conditions who had to pay higher premiums were less than half as likely to enroll in ACA plans.
The results of the Harvard research suggest that people are better off buying insurance from the individual insurance market and paying their premiums, rather than paying out of pocket.
“The ACA has been very successful in reducing health care costs, especially for lower-income and lower-cost individuals,” said lead author Andrew Weil, a professor of health policy at Harvard.
“People are less likely than they were before to buy their own health insurance and they are better served when they purchase plans from the health insurer marketplaces rather than buying their own plans through an employer.”
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, in the third quarter of 2015, the average price for an ACA plan was $1,827, up about $1 from the third-quarter of 2014.
The ACA has reduced premium costs for most people in the U.S., even though some individuals who qualify for subsidies to purchase insurance from their employer will pay more.
