Obamacare?s Biggest Victims: The Young

On 11.06.09 12:11 PM posted by Conn Carroll

Cato Adjunct Scholar Aaron Yelowitz reports:
Health care proposals moving through Congress would force most or all Americans to purchase health insurance (an “individual mandate”) and would impose price controls on health insurance (“community rating”) that would limit insurers’ ability to offer lower premiums to low-risk enrollees.

Those provisions would drive premiums down for 55-year-olds but would drive them up for 25-year-olds—who are then implicitly subsidizing older adults. According to the Urban Institute, many young people could see their premiums double, whereas premiums for older adults could be cut in half.

Read the whole report, here.
