On the September 6th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the rising cost of healthcare and health insurance in California. Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, has announced that in 2017, premiums will rise by an average of 13 percent.

That’s more than three times the increase of the last two years. Why are health insurance costs increasing? And what’s been your experience with Covered California? Tweet your comments to @yourcallradio, and join us live at 10 am, with me Rose Aguilar, and you.
