Which States Have The Worst Health Insurance Gender-Rating?
The POTUS tweeted this map today, which illustrates just how much more the average 25-year-old woman pays for health insurance in each state. The worst offenders are Arkansas and Wyoming, the only two states where women pay on average 76 to 100 percent more than their male peers.
The Affordable Care Act (or “Obamacare”) is currently being debated in the Supreme Court. If it survives and is enacted in 2014, this pay gap — termed “gender-rating” — will be outlawed.
