Obamacare

President Donald Trump says insurers are "going wild" about his new health care options and "millions and millions" of people will be signing up.

Programs that help people sign up for Affordable Care Act plans in Florida will have their funding cut by 81 percent this year.

For the first time in years, health insurance premiums sold on the Affordable Care Act marketplace in Florida are not expected to rise by double digits.

The Trump administration this week cut the budget for programs that help people sign up for Obamacare plans by more than 70 percent.

Premiums for health insurance plans sold on the federal marketplace are expected to increase by nearly 16.9 percent in Florida next year due to changes in the Affordable Care Act, according to a new analysis.

Released on Friday by the Center for American Progress, the analysis estimates that a decision by Congress and President Donald Trump to repeal the mandate that people buy health insurance, coupled with proposed changes to the types of policies that can be sold, will increase premiums for Floridians by $1,011.
