Experts present ideas to strengthen the ACA marketplace


Modern Healthcare reports that despite the gloom about the insurance market set up under the Affordable Care Act, “{H}health policy experts say there are relatively straightforward changes that would strengthen the individual insurance market. The key is getting more younger, healthier people to enroll, to offset the medical costs associated with older, sicker plan members. Experts say this could be done through toughening the mandate to buy insurance; boosting premium and cost-sharing subsidies; restoring risk protections for insurers; letting health plans charge younger people lower rates; beefing up enrollment outreach and education; and prodding people to leave their employer health plans and get covered instead through the individual market.”
