AHA White Paper: State Marketplace Stabilization Strategies

The Health Insurance Marketplaces established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have become an important source of coverage for more than 10 million Americans, many of whom receive federal subsidies to reduce the cost of coverage. However, many of the Marketplaces are exhibiting signs of instability, including volatility in plan participation and significant year-over-year premium rate increases. If instability is not addressed, insurers may choose not to sell in a Marketplace, leaving consumers without options for coverage and without the ability to access federal premium and cost-sharing subsidies.
