WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released a statement regarding the latest premium increases for Healthcare.gov consumers in Wisconsin. 

Wisconsin’s Office of the Commissioner of Insurance recently released a review of the rate increase proposals filed by insurers for individual plans available under the Affordable Care Act, noting the state’s premiums will rise by nearly 16 percent next year.

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Affordable health care is a thing of the past under Obamacare. As insurance companies continue to opt out of this disastrous policy, increasing costs are passed on to hardworking Wisconsinites who simply cannot afford the additional financial burden. It’s critical we repeal this terrible law and bring quality, affordability, and accessibility to our healthcare system.”
