ABSTRACT

Potential Impacts of Uncertainty Regarding Affordable Care Act (ACA) Cost-Sharing Reduction Payments [September 25, 2017]   [open pdf - 97KB]

"Funding for the cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA; P.L. 111-148, as amended) has been the subject of recent hearings about the individual insurance market, numerous press articles, and analyses from actuaries to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The continuation of CSR payments has come into question, and insurers warn that they may leave the market or raise premiums without a commitment to sustained funding. To understand the concern about funding CSR payments, it is important to understand the context in which CSRs are provided, beginning with insurance premiums."
