People in much of Minnesota, northwestern Pennsylvania and Tucson, Ariz., are getting the best bargains from the health care law’s new insurance marketplaces. Their premiums run half as much as those in the country’s most expensive markets.
This information is from Health News Florida. The article say the main reason for lower health insurance premiums is “competition”. In Tucson, we have six insurance companies competing for new enrollments. We also have several hospitals that compete for business and are willing to negotiate with insurance companies asking for lower prices for medical care.
