The American Health Care Act, as introduced on March 6, 2017, will make changes to tax credits and age rating that will have a harmful impact on older adults. See the impact on low- to moderate- income older adults in your state.
Methods: Premium changes are shown on an annual basis. Premium calculations are based on 2017 premiums and tax credits from the Kaiser Family Foundation Health Insurance Marketplace Calculator (http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/). State charts showing average premium increases are based on premium data from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. Premiums under 5:1 were calculated by scaling up 3:1 premiums based on analysis by Joanne Fontana, Thomas Murawski, Sean Hilton, “Impact of Changing ACA Age Rating Structure: An Analysis of Premiums and Enrollment by Age Band”, Milliman Research Report, January 2017, www.milliman.com/aarp. MA, NY and VT do not include changes to age rating.
