If the Supreme Court rules against the Obama administration in King v. Burwell and strikes down subsidies for health insurance purchased on federal exchanges, there are a couple of things Heritage experts Ed Haislmaier and Drew Gonshorowski think Congress should do to respond:
Any congressional response should first focus on exempting individuals, employers, and insurance plans in states without state-run exchanges from the ACA regulations and mandates that increased health insurance premiums to start with. Making the reduction of coverage cost the top priority is also a first step toward a post-Obamacare market in which more affordable coverage reduces the number of individuals who might need assistance, as well as the size and scope of such assistance.
Why focus on these regulations and mandates? Because doing so can reduce premiums as much as 44 percent.
Do you think Congress should rein in the regulations and mandates that make health insurance more expensive?
