Increased premiums and less help for insurance companies are setting up to make 2017 quite a different year for the Affordable Care Act, Capitol Street health care analyst Ipsita Smolinksi told CNBC on Tuesday.
In fact, the ripple effects are already being felt.
"The hospitals have already experienced a bit of a taper from the ACA as far as volumes," she said in an interview with "Closing Bell."
The numbers vary from state to state. While New Hampshire will see a 2 percent increase, Arizona's hike is a whopping 116 percent.
About 85 percent of enrollees have some type of government subsidy to help offset the costs, Smolinski said.
