Petris Center’s Dan Arnold on Covered CA Consumer Choice – California Healthline

The Petris Center’s Dan Arnold was recently interviewed by California Healthline on the recent Health Affairs study, co-authored by Arnold, along with the Petris Center’s Dr. Scheffler, Dr. Fulton, and Jon Gabel from NORC, which analyzed consumer choice and premium increases in the California ACA marketplace.

“Consumers have to do their own research on these plans,” said Daniel Arnold, a University of California, Berkeley researcher and co-author of the study. “We hear [about] an increase of 13 percent, but when consumers switch plans, they might see an increase no larger than 5 percent.”
