ROGER WICKER: Higher prices, fewer choices seen for ACA

Despite President Obama’s promises of savings, his health-care law has been anything but affordable.

Sticker shock has followed the exit of major insurers from health-care exchanges across the nation.

As open enrollment nears on November 1, Americans are facing higher premiums and fewer options for coverage. Millions are still uninsured altogether.

Our state has not dodged Obamacare’s disastrous impact.

Only two insurance carriers will offer plans in Mississippi’s health-care exchange next year. One of these carriers has been approved for a 43 percent increase in premiums.
