Reaction to Insurance Prices Varies by Politics
David From of Americans for Prosperity says prices announced Tuesday by Gov. Pat Quinn's administration are higher than current prices. He cites the conservative Manhattan Institute, which says a 27-year-old Illinois man can get a policy for about $90 a month now. The new insurance policies would cost that person $120 to $170 a month, depending on where he lives.
Illinois Department of Insurance Director Andrew Boron (BOH'-rahn) says comparing policies available now to the richer policies available under the health care law is like comparing apples and oranges. And tax credits will reduce costs for many individuals.
