The first three months of 2017 were not a great time for most Americans to spend their health care dollars, with the number of uninsured people continuing to rise and the cost of the new Obamacare individual mandate continuing to grow.
As a result, most states in 2017 saw their annual health care costs increase, according to the National Association of State Budget Officers.
That’s according to a report published Thursday by the nonpartisan group.
In fact, according the NABO, the nation saw its first $1.3 trillion in health care spending increase in 2017, according a number of recent reports.
In the first quarter of 2017, the average annual health insurance bill jumped $3,000 from the previous quarter.
That increase is largely due to the new individual mandate requiring Americans to purchase insurance or pay a penalty, or both.
In some states, that increase was larger than the average increase in the economy.
In Michigan, the health care bill increased by $1,100.
In Alabama, the bill went up $2,600.
And in Oklahoma, the cost for the state’s Medicaid expansion jumped by $5,000.
The increase is also due in part to the number and scope of states’ Medicaid expansion.
According to the NAMO, states’ annual health costs for 2017 rose an average of $1 for every $1 in national economic growth, and by $4 for every 1% of the economy growth.
But the cost increase isn’t just due to new enrollees.
As we reported earlier this year, the number, scope, and growth of the Medicaid expansion was increasing.
That has made it harder for states to provide good care to low-income residents and has made insurance unaffordable for many people, the NAAO found.
In other words, people are paying more and more out of pocket, and states are finding it harder and harder to provide quality care.
The average annual increase in health insurance costs was $7,400 for the first nine months of the year, and it has risen by $8,600 since the beginning of 2017.
The NAAo also found that the number per capita increase in income from the federal government has increased in each of the first two years of the expansion, and that the average state’s annual cost for insurance for the poorest 10% of its population increased by over $2 in each year.
The cost of Medicaid expansion The NAM, along with the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, have previously found that in 2017 the Medicaid program has helped the poorest people afford health insurance.
And the increase in spending has also been helping to lower premiums.
But that doesn’t mean that the program is paying for itself.
In 2017, a little over half of the money that was spent by the federal program went to states, according data from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
That meant that state and local governments and local government insurers are paying an average total of $9,500 for health care coverage for the average individual.
That number includes both the cost per person and the average cost for people with private health insurance, according NAMo data.
But states and localities can only pay this amount for three months a year, so that doesn`t tell the whole story.
According the Kaiser study, about $3.3 billion of the $6.6 trillion in federal Medicaid money spent by states and private insurers each year goes to cover people who don`t have health insurance and their families.
That`s the cost that the states can collect on their own.
The state health care system The federal health care program, under the Affordable Care Act, requires states to cover their poorest residents, but states can choose not to.
In many states, the federal funding is available to pay for low-cost coverage, and the state can choose to not cover low- and moderate-income people.
For example, the states of Michigan, Alabama, and Tennessee are the states that have decided not to cover low and moderate income people, according an analysis by Kaiser Health News and the Urban Institute.
In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states can’t exclude or cut off federal money for coverage of low- or moderate- income people.
But some states have decided to provide coverage to low and low-wage workers, including the states in the NDAO report.
The Kaiser report found that between August and October, more than 1,000 more people had coverage through the state-level Medicaid expansion than in the same period last year.
Some states have also expanded Medicaid eligibility to help people with disabilities.
Some of those states have made the choice to cover some low-skilled workers in addition to the lower-skilled population, which is often older.
That includes many of the states where Trump has campaigned.
