Most Americans would not see much change in the cost of their insurance premiums as a result of the health care legislation pending in Congress, according to a widely awaited budget analysis. But millions of people who buy insurance on their own, rather than through work, could see higher costs, a fact that could become fodder for health reform critics.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released a study Monday that found the cost of insurance premiums for the nearly 80% of people who receive insurance through work or other group policies would remain stable or slightly fall by 2016, as compared to projections of premium prices under current law.
So much for that reform thingy....
Edit: to be clear apparently based on current projections. e.g the costs will continue to rise at the present rates.
