Higher Premiums May Be On The Way For Nebraskans

LINCOLN- A U.S. Supreme Court decision expected later this month could mean higher premiums for nearly 57,000 Nebraskans.

The court will rule on a lawsuit that could wipe out federal tax credits in 34 states, including Nebraska, which chose not to create their own health insurance markets. The Kaiser Family Foundation says Nebraskans who receive the credits would see an average premium increase of 265 percent without them.

Groups that helped with the enrollment effort say are now worried that they’ll lose coverage.
