Insurance regulators in Ohio say their residents can expect their premiums to spike by double digits on the federal exchange created for the state under Obamacare.
Ohio is warning drivers considering work with a ridesharing service such as Uber or Lyft to understand the insurance implications.
The state's insurance director is reminding Ohioans to evaluate whether they need flood insurance with the arrival of spring and the beginning of warmer weather.
"Higher premiums will continue to put a strain on consumers and small businesses at a time when our state's economy is showing strong signs of recovery and growth," Ms. Taylor said. "Continued and unnecessary headwinds out of Washington are making it more difficult for job creators, hard-working Ohioans and their families to purchase health insurance."
"It's bad news, no doubt, but it's what we expected and it's what the research we did in advance predicted would happen," Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor, a Republican, said. "Ohio has traditionally had a very competitive insurance market which meant our rates were lower than a lot of other states. That means that Obamacare is hitting us harder and driving our costs up significantly."
