Young Americans Will Not Bear Cost Burden Of Covering Older Americans Under Health Reform

"Unlike the age rating limit, the elimination of gender-based pricing will drive premium changes. Certain segments such as younger women will benefit from the prohibition while younger men may pay more as a result," said Telkamp.

The results of the study were based on an analysis of over 20,000 premium quotes for 3,629 health insurance plans available within the two largest metropolitan regions in each state. The report examined price increases in existing policies for males and females ages 23, 30, and 63. Health plans were limited to the individual and family insurance market for consumers under the age of 65. This HealthPocket InfoStat is part of a series using health plan data to produce objective, meaningful, and clarifying information and guidance for consumers navigating an ever-changing health insurance marketplace.
