Estimates may be well below what was forecasted, but it is still going to be more than double the current price for 25-40 year olds.

Per Forbes, in California 40 year old was $121/month, new rate under Obamacare is $261/month.

For 25 year olds, price was $92/month, under Obamacare between $184-$205/month.

So for younger 25-40 year olds who are relatively healthy and purchase insurance on there own.. they will see a substantial increase.

So for relatively healthy younger early retirees, rates will increase by a large amount, unless your income drops low enough into the "low income" category. Then you get discounts off the published rates.
