With Nongroup Premiums Rising Sharply, Several Proposals to Reduce Premium Growth Have Strong Support

Abstract

  • In September 2017, nearly one-quarter of adults in the Marketplace target population reported difficulty paying family health insurance premiums in the past year.
  • Several proposals to reduce nongroup market premiums have strong support, including provider reimbursement limits, reinsurance funding, and enhanced premium subsidies.
  • Within the Marketplace target population, support for these proposals was greatest among adults with Marketplace coverage.
  • However, efforts to stabilize premiums may not be enough to offset the impact of repealing the individual mandate.
