Will my MIP (mortgage insurance premium) increase after a streamline FHA refinance?

I bought my house 2 years ago through a FHA loan. Im about to do a streamline refi, but was told by the lender that my MIP (mortgage insurance premium) would almost double due to new FHA regulations. Is this valid?

    It will go up because the MIP premium fees increased during that time. FHA increased mortgage insurance fees from .55% of the loan amount to 1.55% last year.
