Some ideas politicians are entertaining to have the exchange fund itself are: users “fees”, sin taxes, and selling ads.
Orange, California (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, is an already-in-place market where consumers shop for their most affordable and effective health insurance coverage.
However, since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, numbers are rolling in regarding how much some states will have to pay to maintain the federally mandated state health insurance exchanges.
Minnesota’s previously projected spending ranged from $30-40 million dollars. But now new data places the number projection higher. It has increased to $54 million in 2015. And expected to raise again by 2016 to $64 million, as reported by Pioneer Press.
Consumers and politicians alike are scrambling to find a better way to manage these numbers.
Some ideas politicians are entertaining to have the exchange fund itself are: users “fees,” sin taxes, and selling ads.
Those looking to use the state-established exchange may have to pay higher fees for using it and if they drink, smoke, or are over-weight. Consumers who want to save money may consider other health insurance sources, like HealthCompare, to find health insurance comparisons similar to what will be available at the state level in the marketplace.
