Does having health insurance make people healthier? It's widely assumed that it does. Obamacare's advocates repeatedly said that its expansion of Medicaid would save thousands of lives a year. Obamacare critics seldom challenged the idea that increased insurance coverage would improve at least some people's health.
If workers won't divulge information about indicators of poor future health related to personal behavior, can their employer charge them more for insurance coverage?
Opposition to ACA-style exchanges should also reinforce a more principled strategy: to reshape the future nature of our healthcare system by supporting a better model of true choice and competition for willing buyers and sellers of diverse health insurance products.
The latest Census figures show the United States now has 49.9 million uninsured, an increase of nearly 1 million over the preceding year. Both in terms of absolute numbers and the percentage of Americans without coverage, this is the highest figure recorded since the Bureau began asking questions about health insurance in its annual survey three decades ago.
