6 reasons Obamacare premiums are going up next year

Health insurance plans are just now starting to turn in the prices they want to set for coverage next year. These filings are the first glimpse at how expensive Obamacare will be in 2015.

No individual filing tells the entire story of how much premiums will increase in 2015.
