More Insurers, Lower Premiums?
Evidence from U.S. health insurance marketplaces
Based on the research of Leemore S. Dafny , Jonathan Gruber And Christopher Ody
Evidence from U.S. health insurance marketplaces: Leemore Dafny, a professor of management and strategy at the Kellogg School of Management, finds that premiums on the United States health insurance marketplaces have not been as high as projected, but could they have been even lower. Dafny and her colleagues estimate that premiums in the 34 federally facilitated marketplaces (FFMs) would have been 5.4% lower had a single major carrier who shunned the marketplaces chosen to participate. Had every insurer that operated in the individual insurance markets entered the exchanges, the researchers estimate that premiums could have been 11.1% lower.
