West Virginia: Tell Your Lawmakers Obamacare is Bad for the Mountain State (Archived)

Obamacare has been a disaster for West Virginia families. Regulations and taxes have led to higher insurance and health care costs and fewer insurance options.

  • Average individual market premiums are up $5,292 since Obamacare was implemented in West Virginia.
  • In 2014, 42,250 West Virginia households paid the IRS for the right to go without health insurance in 2014.
  • 19,948 West Virginians have a Health Savings Account, which is subject to additional Obamacare taxes.
  • 20,823 school-aged children in West Virginia have disabilities. Obamacare taxes on Flexible Savings Accounts hit families with special needs especially hard.
  • Finding that Obamacare could not provide what they needed, nearly 30 percent of Americans who signed up for Obamacare coverage in 2016 have already dropped out.
  • 19 of the 23 Obamacare Co-ops have collapsed, and next year more than 1,300 counties in America will have only one health insurance provider – which is no option at all.

West Virginia families are hurting. Call your Senators and Representative and tell them: REPEAL Obamacare and return decision-making power back to the states and the individuals where it belongs.
