One of the main reasons is the expanded use of Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners to do the stuff that doesn't require a doctor, which is actually most of medical care.

Your headline says the opposite of what your linked article says. Your linked article acknowledges that premiums are increasing. Meanwhile, others point out the fact that Obamacare is actually causing increases despite promises premiums would fall.

Medical spending has already exceeded the maximum that the market would bear, which is why the industries lobbied for Obamacare to spend even more.
