#25 – Medical Inflation

Medical care is essential to our communities here in Colorado. But under the leadership of Jared Polis, medical inflation is at 7.62% – almost 3 times higher than the 2.72% allowable premium growth rate estimated by the Division of Insurance and Wakely Consulting Group (Common Sense Institute). High inflation accentuates the cost pressures facing health care providers and health insurance carriers and in turn that cost is passed on to you, the consumer.
