Taxpayer Subsidized Coverage Rising

April 1, 2016

According to a new report by the Congressional Budget office, health coverage paid for by U.S. taxpayers is expect to rise over the next 10 years. Families with employer coverage are expected to decline by 2% from 2016 through 2026. Unsubsidized individual medical coverage is not expected to change. Where all the growth in health coverage will occur is subsidized plans. Individuals with subsidized coverage through the federal and state exchanges are expected to increase by 40%, while those newly eligible for Medicaid due to the ACA will increase by 36%.
