After publishing our brief last month, we received new information about Vermont and Washington that these states can be expected to experience the full effects of short-term limited-duration policy expansion. In this updated brief, we have reclassified Vermont and Washington in that group and revised all affected estimates in the text and tables. We have also corrected our previous statement that short-term limited-duration plans would not meet the Congressional Budget Office’s definition of insurance; the agency’s determination remains uncertain at this time.

The previous version of this brief can be found here.
