(AP) It's the No. 1 question about President Barack Obama's health care law: Will consumers be able to afford the coverage?


Now the answer is coming in.


The biggest study yet of premiums posted by states finds that the sticker price for a 21-year-old buying a mid-range policy will average about $270 a month. A copy of the study was provided to The Associated Press.


That's before government tax credits that act like a discount for most people, depending on their income.


List-price premiums for a 40-year-old will average close to $330, the study found. They're nearly double that for a 60-year-old, $615 a month.


The study by the private data analysis firm Avalere Health points to a competitive market emerging, said lead author Caroline Pearson, with big price differences among age groups, states and even within states.
