WHEC in Rochester, NY reports that residents are facing health insurance premium hikes of up to 22 percent. MVP Health Care announced that insurance premiums will increase by 22 percent for those on MVP’s plans, many of whom signed up under the state’s Obamacare exchange. WHEC stated that the increase is due to the fact that the “bulk” of individuals who signed up through the exchange are “older” and have pre-existing conditions, making them more expensive to cover.
