Health care costs continue to rise under Obamacare.
A report released Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services shows a significant hike in the average cost of individual plans since 2013 in 39 states.
In 2013, the average annual cost of a premium for an individual health care plan was $2,784. By 2017, the average annual cost for a premium for an individual health care plan on HealthCare.gov was $5,712. Thirty-nine states use HealthCare.gov.
Twenty-four states had Obamacare premiums in 2017 that were double the average individual premium in 2013.
