Health insurance companies have taken a hit since President Donald Trump took office, but their premiums have increased since then.
According to a new survey by McKinsey & Co., premiums have been rising for about 5 million people, or about 20 percent of Americans.
In fact, McKinsey says the average cost of health insurance has increased about 9 percent since January.
But the company says the increase is more than offset by the price hikes that insurance companies were offering during the election cycle.
The McKinsey report says the company looked at health insurance policies from private health plans, government-sponsored plans and Medicare plans.
It looked at average premiums for the individual market, a group of plans, and the individual health insurance market.
The average premium increase in the individual plan market is 2.3 percent a year.
That’s up from 2.1 percent in 2017.
The median premium increase for the government-subsidized health insurance plans was about 3 percent a month.
That was down from about 4.3 per cent a year earlier.
The biggest increases in average premiums have come from private plans, which have increased premiums by 8.3 and 13.5 percent, respectively.
McKinsey said the health insurance industry has experienced more severe price increases than expected.
Some of the biggest price increases are among the large plans, like UnitedHealthcare, which saw its average monthly premium increase rise from $18,938 to $20,664.
And Humana saw its premium increase by 8 percent to $28,921.
Those are just the big insurers.
McKinley says there are other plans that have increased prices more than 5 percent or more than 10 percent.
