In The Region:

The state’s top insurance leader warns that the federal Affordable Care Act still brings a lot of uncertainty to the health care market, even with the latest enrollment numbers.

More than seven million people signed up for health care coverage through the new system. Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who is also director of the department of Insurance, cautions that those numbers may be off because enrollees still need to make their first payment in order to qualify.

Taylor says she is keeping a close eye on what happens in the next phase.

“We’re continuing to see premiums rise, uncertainty in the market, questions unanswered," Taylor says. "And I think it makes it that much more difficult for individuals to make decisions but of course small businesses that are trying to make decisions.”

Supporters of the ACA have said that premiums may be higher for some but not for everyone, especially when taking tax credits and subsidies into account.

Ohio insurance companies will soon be turning in their coverage plans for 2015 which, according to Taylor, will paint a clearer picture of where premiums are heading under the federal act.
