Fewer Uninsured Face Fines as ACA Exemptions Swell
The Wall Street Journal; subscription may be required Link to more items from this source
Aug. 7, 2014
"Almost 90% of the nation's 30 million uninsured won't pay a penalty under the [ACA] in 2016 because of a growing batch of exemptions to the health-coverage requirement.... The penalties were intended as a cudgel to increase the number of people signing up, thereby maximizing the pool of insured. Insurers are concerned that the exemptions could make it easier for younger, healthier people to forgo coverage, leaving the pools overly filled with old people or those with health problems. That, in turn, could cause premiums to rise."
