Obamacare premiums will jump an average 25% in 2017, but federal officials say subsidies will keep costs low for most people, according to a new government report.
The Department of Health and Human Services published its outlook for 2017 on Monday, a week ahead of the beginning of open enrollment on Nov. 1. For residents in 38 states using the federal HealthCare.gov marketplace, the benchmark premium will go up 25%. That means the lowest cost 2017 premium for a bronze plan will on average be $366, with silver plans costing $433, and gold plans $538.
