Individual mandate poll results

Thanks to everyone who participated in our poll asking how best to manage adverse selection if the PPACA individual mandate is struck down. The top three answers were:

  • “Use limited enrollment windows to reduce the occurrence of people joining a plan only when they become sick”: 28%
  • “Enforce a penalty that escalates the longer people wait to buy coverage”: 23%
  • “Sever the high-risk population into a separate pool to keep costs for the general population down”: 18%

 
In upcoming posts we’ll take a look at each of these options in a bit more detail.
