The vast majority of enrollees in the Obamacare marketplace would pay higher premiums in 2020 for a silver plan if the Senate healthcare bill passes, with older and lower income enrollees seeing the biggest increases, according to an analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The analysis includes two useful tables comparing the monthly premium for a silver plan under Obamacare to the anticipated premium under the Senate plan after tax credits, based on income and age.

Among the findings: people aged 18 to 34 with incomes below 200 percent of poverty would see an average 82 percent increase, while those 55 to 64 would see an average increase of 288 percent. These increases are due to several provisions in the Senate bill, which include capping eligibility for tax credits at 350 percent of poverty versus the current cap of 400 percent.
