New data from Covered California shows that subsidy-eligible enrollees in Sacramento County saw average monthly health insurance premiums lower than most counties statewide.
The average health insurance premium in Sacramento County for the 2016 coverage year was $96.78 a month. That's lower than San Francisco County, Los Angeles County and San Diego County.
"It comes down to competition," Larry Hicks, a spokesman for Covered California, said.
Diversity among hospitals, where you live and how many insurers are in a particular area are all factors that contribute to health insurance rates.
Outside of Sacramento County, premiums were higher in Placer County ($115.62/month), San Joaquin County ($97.13/month), Yolo County ($103.66/month) and Stanislaus County ($105.17/month).
While the Affordable Care Act remains on the books for now, Covered California Executive Director Peter V. Lee said Tuesday that the proposed American Health Care Act, which is essentially a flat tax credit based on age, will "make coverage unaffordable and in many cases, put coverage out of reach."
