An official with the Nebraska Health Care Alliance estimates when the federal health care law fully goes into effect in several months, requiring all policies to be compliant, the expense will be staggering. Paul Utemark, C-E-O of the Fillmore County Hospital, says premiums in Nebraska could increase an average of about 30-percent.

 

Utemark expects we’ll see a lot of things businesses and individuals will try to make insurance work.

 

Utemark says every family and individual experiences a different situation when it comes to health care, which makes it difficult to find a solution that’s acceptable to all.
