Aetna Chairman and CEO Mark Bertolini said that everyone’s premiums will increase next year unless Obamacare is fixed.
Bertolini was asked what would happen to health care premiums in 2017 at the DealBook Conference in New York City.
“If you’re on the exchange, 25 percent looks like a pretty good number this year,” he said. “It’s going to be bigger next year unless we fix [Obamacare].”
Bertolini went on to criticize Obamacare, calling for a health care product that is more affordable and personalized.
“Eighty-one percent of the American public hate their health insurance, they hate the health-care system,” the CEO said. “We have too many uninsured, it’s not affordable even for people making six figures.”
